This list by no means complete. Many other variants may occur, but it is important to note that it should end with one or two T's.
One of the earliest occurrences of the name is the Will of Thomas KAVENOTT in 1570 a servant of Lord DACRE who left four pounds to 'the poor people of the pysh (parish) of Myllyfarnam (Multyfarnham) in Ireland where I was borne.'
Morgan CAVENETT, servant of Prince Charles. was Buried on the 12th of October 1624 at St. Martin-in-the-Fields, London.
Other rare occurrences follow in the latter 17th & 18th centuries.
It is important to note that there are a number of web sites etc. where the surname CAVENETT or variant has been mistranscribed but upon analysis of the original document it has been found to be a completely different surname.
There is too much information to put in this section I will hopefully soon have links below to provide more information on the family and I am happy to correspond with people who contact me.
