Where did the English Cash family come from? What is the English Cash family crest and coat of arms? When did the Cash family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Cash family history?

The many generations and branches of the Cash family can all place the origins of their surname with the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name reveals that an early member worked as a maker of boxes or chests. The surname Cash is derived from the Old French word casse, which means case. Thus, Cash is a metonymic type of occupational surname; it is derived from the principal object associated with the occupation, which in this case was the product produced.

Before the last few hundred years, the English language had no fast system of spelling rules. For that reason, spelling variations are commonly found in early Anglo-Saxon surnames. Over the years, many variations of the name Cash were recorded, including Cash, Cass, Cashe and others.

First found in Cambridgeshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Cash family emigrate to North America:
