About the Project

The Trott Name Study project serves as a collaborative platform to collect information on the Trott name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join the study to help make it a valuable reference point for other genealogists who are researching or have an interest in the SRNM name.

As a One Name Study, this project is not limited to persons who are related biologically. Individual team studies can be used to branch out the research into specific methods and areas of interest, such as geographically (England Trotts), by time period (18th Century Trotts), or by topic (Trott DNA, Trott Occupations, Trott Statistics). These studies may also include a number of family branches which have no immediate link with each other. Some researchers may even be motivated to go beyond the profile identification and research stage to compile fully sourced, single-family histories of some of the families they discover through this name study project.

Also see the related surnames and surname variants.

Hi Mike. I’m in London (England) and Chair the Trott One Name Research Group. What’s your interest in the Trott family?

Regards Bob Trott

I'm not that interested or at least any more than any other surname. I had posted the bit abt the Trott family in NJ and migrating to the Washington DC USA area as a general alert to whomever might be interested. My family is the Bryan family amongst others in early Piscataway MD who frequented Alexandria on the other side of the Potomac. Rebecca Bryan married Edward Plummer (probably b. MA) and his sister, Julia married John Trott of Alexandria, VA before moving to TX. I am interested in many other families in/around Washington during the US Civil War, helping my 2nd cousin whom is addressing a question why the Bryan Family wasn't implicated in the Lincoln Assassination since they were neighbors and very close friends with Mary Surratt, sociable at her tavern in Surattsville.

Thanks. I haven't had much time to work on the name study lately, but when I get back to it I will be in touch. Meantime, feel free to add profiles to the study.

I am just uploading a new GEDCOM. Can you see that? I keep my records on my laptop in Legacy 9 so don't duplicate them in Wikitree.
