Meaning & History

Of Dutch origin and still in use there in a restricted region. Herder of large animals such as cattle or horses. May share a root with Ostler (unverified). Note: Stot in Scottish dialect still means a young bull.
Some anecdotal evidence that Stoters came to England in the 16th Century to help build the dykes of East Anglia.
