The ancient name of Castleman finds its origins with the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It comes from a name for 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 Castleman is derived from the Old Norman French word castel, which means castle. The suffix man denotes a servant.

Castleman Early Origins



The surname Castleman was 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.

Castleman Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Castleman family name include Castleman, Casselman, Cassman, Cassellman and others.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived.
