by John Eacott
Very few people can point to an exact place and say "This is where my ancestors originated." The manor of Eycot from which all Eacotts, Ecotts take their name was created by a Saxon charter 1,200 years ago, at a place which had probably been a Roman villa and before that a part of the capital area of the Dobunni tribe on the Churn River, a few miles north of Cirencester, England.
This web site contains information about the background history, specific persons and families as well as material of general interest to help understand the people. The entire text of the book is available on line and may be copied in full or in part providing the author is acknowledged.
