Cagots

.

A sort of gipsy race in Gasʹcony and Bearne, supposed to be descendants of the Visigoths, and shunned as something loathsome. (See Caqueux, Colliberts.)

“Cagoti non fuerunt monachi, anachoritæ, aut leprosi; … sed genus quoddam hominum cæteris odiosum. Vasconibus Cagots, nonnullis Capoti, Burdegalentibus Gaheti, Vascis et Navarris Agoti, dicuntur.”—Ducange: Glossarium Manuale, vol. ii. pp. 23, 24.
