The Cossons family saga is rooted in the people of the Pictish Clan of ancient Scotland. The Cossons family lived in the lands of Cossins near the Castle of Glamis, the childhood home of Queen Elizabeth II.

Cossons Early Origins



The surname Cossons 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.
