The Anglo-Saxon name Coysh comes from when the family resided in a small cottage, hut, or hovel. The surname Coysh is derived from the Old English words cosche and cosshe, which both have this meaning. These words first appeared c. 1490. Coysh belongs to the class of topographic surnames, which were given to people who resided near physical features such as hills, streams, churches, or types of tree.

Coysh Early Origins



The surname Coysh was first found in Cambridgeshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Coysh or a variant listed above: M. Coisch who arrived in Baltimore in 1820.
