About us

The Northcote DNA Project welcomes all participants. We encourage you to join today!

Our project is just getting started, and we expect to have many exciting discoveries and uncover a variety of genealogical lines.

Participating is an opportunity to uncover information not provided in the paper records, which will help with your family history research. We will also discover which family trees are related. As the project progresses, the results for the various family trees will provide information about the evolution of the surname. There are thought to be a number of variants such as Narracott, Norcot, Norcott, Norcut, Norcutt, Norket, Norkett, Northcot, Northcote, Northcott, Northcotte, Northcut, Northcutt.

The surnames in this DNA Project are researched as part of the Northcote one-name study. You can learn more about this significant research by visiting the one-name study web site:

You can also contact the project administrator for more detail on family trees by emailing

The Y-DNA test tells you about your direct male line, which would be your father, his father, and back in time. You must be male to take this test, and you should have one of the surnames shown. If you believe there is a Northcote or variant in your direct male line, although you have a different surname, you are also welcome to participate. If you are female, you will need to find a direct line male in your family tree to participate and represent your tree.

We encourage males to order a Y-DNA test for 37 markers, if possible. If you order less markers, you can upgrade later, though this costs a little more.
