The current generations of the Cosand family have inherited a surname that was first used hundreds of years ago by descendants of the ancient Scottish tribe called the Picts. The Cosand family lived in the lands of Cossins near the Castle of Glamis, the childhood home of Queen Elizabeth II.

Cosand Early Origins



The surname Cosand was first found in Angus (Gaelic: Aonghas), part of the Tayside region of northeastern Scotland, and present day Council Area of Angus, formerly known as Forfar or Forfarshire, 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.

The Great Migration



The cruelties suffered under the new government forced many to leave their ancient homeland for the freedom of the North American colonies. Those who arrived safely found land, freedom, and opportunity for the taking. These hardy settlers gave their strength and perseverance to the young nations that would become the United States and Canada. Immigration and passenger lists have shown many early immigrants bearing the name Cosand: Elizabeth Cossen who settled in Barbados in 1635; Jonathon Cossens arrived with servant in Barbados in 1680; William Cossens arrived in Barbados in 1685.
