Cash History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms 

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.

Early Origins of the Cash family

The surname Cash was 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.

Cash migration to the United States

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:
