Carous History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Carous is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived in a house which was situated by a marsh. Carous is a topographic surname, which is a type of surname that was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. However, Carous may also be a habitation surname derived from a pre-existing name for a town, village, parish, or farmstead. In this case, the eponymous settlement is Carhouse, in Yorkshire.

Migration of the Carous family

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 Carouss to arrive in North America: John Carus who arrived in Jamaica in 1684.
