Costelloh Early Origins



The surname Costelloh was first found in Westmorland where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066.

But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1306 when Sir George de Castello (Georgius du Chastel) was knighted by King Edward 1st, on the occasion of the knighting of his son, Prince Edward.

Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled.
