Corse Surname History


Origins Available: Italian , Scottish


Among the clans of the Scottish/English Borderlands, the Strathclyde Britons were the first to use the name Corse. It is derived from the Scotish word kerss, or carse, which describes low, fertile land, often next to a river. The surname may well be a habitational name taken on from any of several places so named, such as Carse of Falkirk, Carse of Forth, Carse of Gowrie, Carse in Kirkcudbrightshire, or Carse in Argyllshire.


Early Origins of the Corse family


The surname Corse was first found in Perthshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Pheairt) former county in the present day Council Area of Perth and Kinross, located in central Scotland, 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.

Migration of the Corse family to the New World and Oceana


The persecution faced in their homeland left many Scots with little to do but sail for the colonies of North America. There they found land, freedom, opportunity, and nations in the making. They fought for their freedom in the American War of Independence, or traveled north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. In both cases, they made enormous contributions to the formation of those great nations. Among them:
