The ancestors of the Crossdaile surname lived among the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. The name comes from when they lived in Crossdale, in the county of Yorkshire.

Early Origins of the Crossdaile family


The surname Crossdaile 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.

Migration of the Crossdaile family to the New World and Oceana


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: Thomas Crossdale who arrived in Philadelphia in 1866.
