The origins of the Askworde name come from when the Anglo-Saxon tribes ruled over Britain. The name Askworde was originally derived from a family having lived in North Yorkshire, where they took their name from the village of Askwith. The place-name is derived from the Old English word askvior, which means dweller near the ash wood.

Askworde Early Origins



The surname Askworde was first found in Yorkshire, where they had been settled from ancient times, long before the Norman Conquest of 1066.

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: Charles, Jacob, Robert, Samuel, and William Asquith, who arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania between 1858 and 1875.
