Surname Saturday - Chilcutt

From a Dictionary of English & Welsh Surnames
Chilcutt is an English surname said to have originated in Derbyshire, England. Some of the many variations are Chillcutt, Chilcoat, Chilcott, Chilcote, and Chilcothe. There are records as far back as the 1600s for Chilcutts in Virginia and Maryland, but the earliest I have traced my Chilcutt family is to John W. Chilcutt, born around 1815 in Maryland, USA.



Pictured above is my great-great-grandmother, Kate Covey Chilcutt in Chestertown, Maryland. She was married to George B. Chilcutt, the son of John W. Chilcutt and Catharine Harmon.
