Crosthwait Early Origins



The surname Crosthwait was first found in Cumberland. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lowe, Mark Anthony, Patronymica Britannica, A Dictionary of Family Names of the United Kingdom. London: John Russel Smith, 1860. Print.
[2]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)
While technically in England, Cumberland (Cumbria) is actually on the Scottish Borders, an area of conflict for centuries between the Scottish and the English.

"There are places named Crossthwaite in Cumberland, Westmorland, and Yorkshire." [3]CITATION[CLOSE]
Black, George F., The Surnames of Scotland Their Origin, Meaning and History. New York: New York Public Library, 1946. Print. (ISBN 0-87104-172-3)

As far as early records of the family are concerned, they are indeed few as we only found one record of the family in the Hundredorum Rolls of 1273: John de Crostweyt and this was a family in Norfolk. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
