  From  Webster's  Revised  Unabridged  Dictionary  (1913)  [web1913]: 
 
  Dependant  \De*pend"ant\,  Dependance  \De*pend"ance\,  n., 
  Dependancy  \De*pend"an*cy\,  n. 
  See  {Dependent},  {Dependence},  {Dependency}. 
 
  Note:  The  forms  dependant,  dependance,  dependancy  are  from 
  the  French;  the  forms  dependent,  etc.,  are  from  the 
  Latin.  Some  authorities  give  preference  to  the  form 
  dependant  when  the  word  is  a  noun  thus  distinguishing 
  it  from  the  adjective,  usually  written  dependent.
