Asshaw Early Origins



The surname Asshaw was first found in Lancashire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Ashaw from about the 12th century. Consistently the Coat of Arms of this family name in all its spellings has been represented by three heraldic birds.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Asshaws to arrive in North America: George Ashall who settled in Virginia in 1641.
