The surname Carstarphen was first found in Midlothian, where they held a family seat in their territories. The Pictish influence on Scottish history diminished after Kenneth Macalpine became King of all Scotland. But those east coast families still played an important role in government and were more accessible to Government than their western highland counterparts.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Corstophine, Carstarphen, Carstophine, Carstophene, Carstrphen, Corstophen and many more.
