Not necessarily all, but many of the Cottams in the United States are descended from Thomas Cottam (1820-1896) who was born in Yorkshire, England and immigrated to the United States after being converted to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He settled in Salt Lake City, Utah, and later moved to Saint George, Utah. There is a sizeable Cottam population in Saint George to this day.
A book was published listing, to the extent possible to the researchers, the descendents of Thomas Cottam.
