Gotts One-Name Study on the web

Wikipedia entry for the surname Gotts


Wikipedia now has a page for the surname Gotts. They do not allow any Original Research, ie analysis done by ourselves, unless it is published elsewhere in an independent source which has scrutiny by others. I have also had to follow their format on content, so it is largely about the etymology of the name pre 1538. I have added the detail on the History of the Name pages.
