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.

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:
