Their name comes from 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.

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Asquorde were among those contributors: Charles, Jacob, Robert, Samuel, and William Asquith, who arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania between 1858 and 1875.
