The Cassman family name dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. The name comes from when an early member 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 Cassman is derived from the Old Norman French word castel, which means castle. The suffix man denotes a servant.

The Great Migration



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Cassmans to arrive on North American shores: Ann Judith Castleman who settled in New York with her husband, Christian, and daughter Eva, in 1710.
