Hi Debbie, had a quick look through the online version of 'View of Devonshire in 1630 with a pedigree .......' by Thomas Westcote, 1845. Would he be an ancestor of the Westcott's spelt differently?

Jan Westcott
Hi Jan, I don't know if he's related to our Westcotts. They could all conceivably share a common ancestor in the distant past. There seem to be a number of different Westcott lines in Devon and others in Somerset. The only way to find out is by doing a DNA project for the Westcotts to find out how many lines are related!
This e book is well worth a look:
Wanderings in Wessex
Thanks Richie. I've added all the links. I've put a note that the TDA volumes are starting to appear on Google but I won't list them individual as I can see that the list will eventually get out of hand.
