Origins Available: English, French


The name Coust is 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. Coust provides an example of a metronymic surname. Names of this type are derived from the given name of the original bearer's mother.

Coust Early Origins



The surname Coust 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.

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: Christopher Cust who arrived in America in 1746.
