Origins Available: English, Scottish


The ancestors of the bearers of the Coash family name are thought have lived in ancient Anglo-Saxon England. They were first found in a small cottage, hut, or hovel. The surname Coash is derived from the Old English words cosche and cosshe, which both have this meaning. These words first appeared c. 1490. Coash belongs to the class of topographic surnames, which were given to people who resided near physical features such as hills, streams, churches, or types of tree.

Coash Early Origins



The surname Coash was first found in Cambridgeshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

Coash Spelling Variations



Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Coash include Coish, Coysh, Quoise, Coise and others.

The Great Migration



Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Coash or a variant listed above: M. Coisch who arrived in Baltimore in 1820.
