Hi and Welcome !!! We are Paul and Louise Shapcott.
One of our hobbies is researching ...
Shapcott Family History
We started out by researching our own branch of the Shapcotts of Whitestone and Exeter, Devon.
Then we began working on a general study of the surname Shapcott and other variant
ways of spelling the name i.e. -
Shapcote, Shipcott, Shipcote, Shepcote, etc.
We are gradually gathering information regarding the various sections of the Shapcott family.
There are some definite branches which are starting to link up to form a much bigger family tree.
We have been liaising with several other Shapcott researchers,
and we have put together a large database of information.
We have registered our interests with “The Guild of One-
our membership reference is # 4023.
We hope that other Shapcott researchers will wish to join the Shapcott One Name Study Group.
If you share the Shapcott / Shipcott name or have a connection with this family,
and are interested in tracing your family’s history, we would be very happy to try and help you ,
and to share any information we have gathered.
Perhaps you may be able to help us with some new information
regarding your own branch of the family.
We are also interested to discover just how far and wide Shapcotts are dispersed from their homeland of North Devon,
and to learn more about their individual stories and different ways of life.
We are looking forward to hearing from you .... Please do Contact Us
