The Endicott Family



The Endicott Coat of Arms- Thanks to Edward Endicott & J.D. Endicott!


Our Endicott roots are firmly planted in United States soil. The first of our ancestors to arrive from Devonshire, England was John Endecott. He was the first Governor of The Massachusetts Bay Colony. The Endicott family then migrated from Mass. to North Carolina, into Kentucky and Indiana, finally settling in White County, Illinois.
