Beckett Family History

This interesting surname, of Anglo-Saxon origin, has three possible sources, the first of which is locational either from Beckett in Berkshire, or from Beckett in Devonshire. The former place, recorded as "Becote" in the Domesday Book of 1086, and as "Buccot" in the "Book of Fees" for Berkshire, dated 1220, is so called from the Olde English pre 7th Century "beo", bee, and "cot", cottage or shelter. Beckett in Devonshire, recorded as "Bikkecoth" in the 1242 "Book of Fees" for that county, has as its component elements the Olde English personal name "Bicca" with "cot" as before.
