Early Origins of the Ashtree family


The surname Ashtree was first found in Bedfordshire (Old English: Bedanfordscir) in Southeast-central England, formerly part of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Mercia. First mentioned as a county in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle in 1011, Bedfordshire's boundaries have survived virtually unchanged to this day. It was here. 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 13th century when they held estates in that shire. They held a family seat at Wood-end and Henbury.

Migration of the Ashtree family to the New World and Oceana


For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Ashtree or a variant listed above: James Astry, who arrived in St. Christopher in 1624; an no doubt others, who arrived along the eastern seaboard, from Newfoundland, to Maine, to Virginia, the Carolinas, and to the islands..
