Southcott, Joanna, 1750-1814, English religious visionary. Uneducated, even illiterate, she spent her earlier years in domestic service. She began c.1792 to claim the gift of prophecy; her "revelations" attracted many followers. Later she announced that, as the woman in Revelation 12, she would be the mother of the coming Messiah. Soon after the time she had set for the birth of the "second Shiloh," she died of brain disease, at the age of 64. Her followers continued to study the 60 or more tracts and books of her writing; the sect never completely died out. She left a locked box with instructions that it be opened only in the presence of all the bishops at a time of national crisis. In 1928, a box alleged to be hers was opened when one bishop agreed to be present; it revealed nothing of interest. Among her books is The Strange Effects of Faith (2 vol., 1801-2).

See G. R. Balleine, Past Finding Out (1956).

Southcott was a five piece pop-punk band from Rockland County, New York whose releases included the album, Flee The Scene, on Less Avenged Records / Rust Records, which received national distribution through Universal Records.

Formed in late 2001, Southcott formed when founding members Barry Walsh, Mike Bateman and John Damiano, recruited former Envy Of Your Friends member, Chris Pennings, as their bassist, who would eventually become their lead singer after Walsh's departure. Their debut EP, The Lost Art of Saying Goodbye, debuted in 2003 on New Jersey indie label Rock Out Records and contained the song Absolut, which brought them some recognition in the New York/New Jersey rock scene.

After touring across the United States and a few major lineup changes, they broke out of their Rockout Records contract and immediately signed to Seattle’s Less Avenged Records in the July 2005, and eventually signed to the Cleveland based Universal imprint, Rust Records, in December 2005. Their full length debut album, Flee The Scene, was a jointly released album between Rust and Less Avenged and helped them to secure a small following across the country.

Through their run, they toured with bands like Adelphi, Coheed and Cambria, Ellison, Faulter, Just Surrender, Rookie of the Year, Self Against City, Houston Calls, The Track Record, and Gym Class Heroes with several stints on the Vans Warped Tour.

The band broke up in the early weeks of 2007 after their bassist trix quit.
