Origins Available: English, Irish


The name Cashwell is Anglo-Saxon in origin. It was a name given to a maker of boxes or chests. The surname Cashwell is derived from the Old French word casse, which means case. Thus, Cashwell 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.

Cashwell Early Origins



The surname Cashwell 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.

Cashwell Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Cashwell include Cash, Cass, Cashe and others.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Cashwell were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: William Cash who settled in Salem, Massachusetts in 1667; married and had William and John and five daughters; John Cass settled in Virginia in 1639; Mary settled in Maryland in 1718.
