The Casselman name was coined by the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. Casselman was originally a name given to someone who worked as a person who worked in a castle. The original bearer of the surname may have held the post of governor or constable of the castle. The surname Casselman is derived from the Old Norman French word castel, which means castle. The suffix man denotes a servant.

It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, early Anglo-Saxon surnames like Casselman are characterized by many spelling variations. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages, even literate people changed the spelling of their names. The variations of the name Casselman include: Castleman, Casselman, Cassman, Cassellman and others.

First found in Dorset 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.

Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Casselman or a variant listed above:
