It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, early Anglo-Saxon surnames like Casselman are characterized by many spelling variations. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages, even literate people changed the spelling of their names. The variations of the name Casselman include: Castleman, Casselman, Cassman, Cassellman and others.

First found in Dorset where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Casselman or a variant listed above:
