Coost is a name of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from the female personal names Custance and Constance. These medieval names are derived from the Latin name Constantia, which was originally a female form of the name Constantis, which means steadfast or faithful. Coost provides an example of a metronymic surname. Names of this type are derived from the given name of the original bearer's mother.

Coost Early Origins



The surname Coost was first found in Lincolnshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Belton, a village near Grantham, which, at the taking of the Domesday Book census in 1086 consisted of a Church and 5 mills. It was the King's land. From their early beginnings, for the next few centuries, the family name also acquired other estates or manors as branches established themselves throughout England. The major conflicts of the eras, such as the War of the Roses, the English Reformation, and the English Civil War sometimes found them to be in opposing camps, with conflicting interests.
