The Anglo-Saxon name Asquorthey comes from when the family resided 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.

Asquorthey Early Origins



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

The Great Migration



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 Asquorthey or a variant listed above: Charles, Jacob, Robert, Samuel, and William Asquith, who arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania between 1858 and 1875.
