Bonass History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms




Early Origins of the Bonass family


The surname Bonass was first found in Cumbria where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. 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 year 1592 when William Bowness held estates in Yorkshire, where the family name had moved from its origin in Westmorland. Bowness, an ancient town on Windermere is famous for its relics including the stained glass in the Church of St.Martin which is identified with the Cartmel Priory in Furness.
