Cawsey History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The origins of the Cawsey name lie with England's ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It comes from when the family lived in the Pays de Caux (Seine-Infèrieure) in Normandy. However, the surname Cawsey may have also been applied to someone who lived near a causeway, which was a raised roadway crossing wet or low-lying ground. In the latter case, the surname Cawsey is derived from the Old English word cauce, meaning causeway. Cawsey is a classic example of an English polygenetic surname, which is a surname that was developed in a number of different locations and adopted by various families independently.

Early Origins of the Cawsey family


The surname Cawsey was first found in Sussex 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.

Migration of the Cawsey family to the New World and Oceana


To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Cawsey family emigrate to North America:
