Some decided to emigrate overseas, in search of new lives in distant lands - and
travelled the oceans to:
America, Canada, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.
So nowadays we can find Shapcotts scattered all over the globe.
There has already been a great deal of research carried out, over the past years,
into our Shapcott family ancestry
by a number of very dedicated family historians - particularly by :-
(the late) REV. LEONARD SHAPCOTT, of Auckland, New Zealand
( who wrote several editions of a book called - “ A Family Called Shapcott "
(the late) BETTY and SIDNEY SHAPCOTT of Seaton, Devon
(the late) PAUL SHAPCOTT of Bristol
(the late) STANLEY ROBERT SPENCER SHAPCOTT ("Spen")
(the late) HAROLD SUTTON SHAPCOTT of Queensland, Australia
(the late) DOROTHY SHAPCOTE of Plymouth
JENNIFER SHAPCOTT of Tunbridge Wells, Kent
(the late) JOHN SHIPCOTT of Camborne, Cornwall
AUSTEN SHAPCOTT and Family of Croydon
TERRY SHAPCOTT and Family of Derby
RENÉE SVENSON and Family of Canada / USA
DAVID ALLEN of Canada
ANDREW BORE of Canada
PETER SHAPCOTT of New Zealand
.................... among many, others, so sorry to anyone if we have omitted you
from this list.
We too are working hard to continue researching the many diverse branches of the
Shapcott family, and we are presently endeavouring to collate as much information
as possible into one large database, which is steadily growing in size.
We have already made many new friends /"cousins", and we are now corresponding with
Shapcotts and Shapcott descendants in Belgium, America, Canada, South Africa, Australia,
New Zealand as well as in the UK.
We are only too happy to share any information we have with others who are interested
in Shapcott Family History
