I just wish to thanks everyone for the information, sorry I ddidn't get back to you but I lost track of time and couldn't find the message.
From what I can gather the name cawte is generally considered to be from a french origins but a family friend has managed to trace back the name to the 1500's all based around southern england within agriculture.
The reason why I was exploring a different connection is because I'm very unconvinced of the french connection.
Therefore I looked at the word itself and noticed it displayed patterns to romanian and found it was similar to the word Cauta. I'm unsure of the origins but I don't think france is the true origins of the name, if it is french then I would place it around 1100 to 1200's but I think it might be pre-norman.
