Wilmott Family History

Recorded in many spelling forms including Wilmot, Willmot, Wilmott, Willmett, Willmetts, Willimott and Wilmut, this is an English surname of Germanic pre 7th century origins. It is a diminutive of the personal name "Wilhelm", plus the diminutive suffix 'et(t) or "ot(t)" meaning 'little' or possibly 'son of'. Wilhelm, the Germanic form of William, is composed of the elements "wil" meaning "strength of mind", plus "helm", meaning "protection". It was first introduced into England and Scotland by the Norman-French after the Conquest of 1066 as "Willelmi".
