Families covered: Glascott of Aldergate, Glascott of Aldertown, Glascott of Fruit Hill, Glascott of Kingsbury, Glascott of Pilltown

(1) The name of this family appears nowadays to be mainly spelt as 'Glascott' but we have also seen it as 'Glascot', 'Glasscot', 'Glasscott' and even Glascock & Glasscock. [The Harleian Society's version of Visitation (Essex 1558) contains an article on a Glascock family which shows the name of the first 3 generations as 'Glascotte' before it turns to 'Glascocke'.] None of BLG1879, BLG1886 & show any arms for the family shown below. That does not help the investigation into whether or not there was indeed an early connection with present Glascock families. Consequently, whilst we think tat quite likely, we show the Glascock family separately (see Glascock1).
(2) BLG1886 starts with the following John and reports that he "and his ancestors held lands in the manor of Glascott, as copy-holders, which lands were lost on the attainder of John, 5th Lord Clinton, during the wars between the houses of York and Lancaster, anno 38 Henry VI, 1461".
