The history of the Croasdaile family goes back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It is derived from the family living in Crossdale, in the county of Yorkshire.

Croasdaile Early Origins



The surname Croasdaile was first found in Yorkshire, where the earliest record of the name occurs was of Johannes de Crosdale in 1379 who was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax Rolls in 1379. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Bardsley, C.W, A Dictionary of English and Welsh Surnames: With Special American Instances. Wiltshire: Heraldry Today, 1901. Print. (ISBN 0-900455-44-6)
Some of the family held estates at Waddington in the West Riding of Yorkshire since early times. "This place afforded an asylum to the unfortunate monarch Henry VI., who, after the battle of Hexham, was entertained at Waddington Hall, the property of the Croasdale family, and protected by concealment from the pursuit of his enemies for nearly twelve months." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
There is no doubt that the name is from the Yorkshire/ Lancashire borders but the local seems to have been lost over the years.

Croasdaile Spelling Variations



Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Croasdaile include Crossdale, Crosedill, Crosdale, Croasdale, Crossdell, Crosdell, Croasdell and many more.

The Great Migration



Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Croasdaile or a variant listed above: Thomas Crossdale who arrived in Philadelphia in 1866.
