Early Origins of the Gosspatrick family
The surname Gosspatrick was first found in Northumberland where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1061 when Earl Gospatrick accompanied Tostig on a pilgrimage to Rome. He was of Saxon and Pictish blood. Hutton-Rudby, a township, in the parish of Rudby-in-Cleveland, union of Stokesley in the North Riding of Yorkshire was an ancient family seat. "This place, in Domesday Book written Hotun, was the property of Gospatrick, Earl of Northumberland, but on the rebellion of that noble was bestowed by the Conqueror upon the Earl of Morton."
