In the 17th and 18th centuries people from all over England moved to London looking for work opportunities. These included Woolcotts from Devon and Somerset and Walcotts from Eastern England.

One Woolcott family at London descended from William Woolcott of Somerset:

A deed of 1761 to William Woolcott of Wellington, carpenter, describes property as 'all those old walls or ruins of a house with a burgage in Milway in Wellington Borough'. By 1801 eight houses had been built on this site and by 1810 a workshop, warehouses and dying house had been 'lately built'. The property is described as Woolcott Row in 1838. Deeds of 1763, 1767 and August 1801 also include a cottage and ¼ garden near Westford; m. (1) Elizabeth Hartland 1741 St. Ann Soho, London, m. (2) Ann Drake 1780 Wellington, Somerset.

Ten children survived, one being Mrs Esmand who left her estate to her daughters, Mrs Turner and Miss Esmand, including the money from her father's will.
