SCOTT Family History

Scott is a Gaelic surname of Old Irish origin originating in the Scottish Borders. The name subsequently became a forename, and the descendants of this kin-group since spread throughout the world giving the name to dozens of towns and cities. Scott came from Scoti or Scotti (Old Irish Scot, modern Scottish Gaelic Sgaothaich), which was the generic name given by the Romans to Gaelic raiders from Ireland. Use of the term 'Scot' by English people led to the naming of northern Great Britain as Scotland, or 'land of the Gaels'.

(Part 1 of 3) The Scott name has a long history in the British Isles, but now DNA and some recorded history says its origin is from the north-west region of the Emerald Island. The Scott story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup D2] can trace their beginnings to the Finn Valley in Donegal, Ireland from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. The Scott surname origin is from the Cenél Conaill [R1b-L513, Subgroup D] who found the Dál Fiatach.

(Part 2 of 3) A group will also found the Kingdom of Ercing in Wales as trade with Romans will become essential around 300 CE. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Scott story begins in pre-history Ireland but this line and many of his kin will move to Wales, then travel to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.
