The first reference to the family here may be the marriage of William Howgat and Sarah Syr at Aston in 1697. Nathaniel Howcott (buried 1741) was the ancestor of most of the Howcutts in the Birmingham area. The final Howcutt living there was his great grandson, William (1792-1878).




Howcutts lived here, probably continuously, between 1568 and 1856.




Henry Howcutt voted in respect of Brixworth property in the 1702 and 1705 parliamentary elections. William Howcot, a labourer, and Susan Walton were both living at Brixworth when they married there on 24 June 1703. It is not known how Henry and William were related to James Houcot who married Mary Ward of Brixworth in 1720. James and Mary established the Howcutt family that continued at Brixworth until 1900.




Robert Howcott, originally from Bitteswell, lived here for ten years or more prior to his death in 1602/3. His son Robert (about 1575-1635) had a number of children christened at Bruntingthorpe in the early 17th century, including Robert Howcott of Stoughton.




Thomas Harcatt paid the lay subsidy tax here in 1524.




The Howcutt surname and variations are found here between 1474 and 1732. It is quite feasible that the family lived here continuously between those dates.
