I started the one-name study after researching my family history and discovering that my husband's pedigree was revealing patterns about the Caldicott surname and where the surname originated. I began the study at the start of 2017 so it is in its infancy but I am excited to learn more and go far and wide.
So far I am including the following variants in my study, although I will continue to add to this list as I progress. I strongly suspect that there will be many more as the name can be spelt in many different ways.
CALDICOTE, CALDICUTT, CALDICOT, GOLDICOTT, CALDECOTT, CALDECOTE, CALDECUTT, CALDECOT, CALDECOTTE, CALDECOAT, CALDECOATE, CALDECOURT, COLDICOTT, COLDECOTT, COLDECOTE, COLDICOT, COLLECOTT, COLLACOTT, COLOCOTT, COLCUTT, COLLCOTT, COLLCUTT, COLKETT, CORCUT, CORCUTT, CALLICOTT, CALCOTT, CALLCOTT, CALCUTT, CALCUT, CALCOT, CAULCUTT, CAULKETT, CAWCUTT
The name Caldicott means "dweller of cold huts" and dates back to Anglo Saxon times. The first appearances of the name are found in Peterborough and Worcestershire. The name appears in the Doomsday Book in Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, Warwickshire, Leicestershire and Northamptonshire.
My own interests have been with the my husband's pedigree which were based in Gloucestershire in the village of Tredington in the 1700s.
