The origins of the Cuerten name lie with England's ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It comes from when the family lived in the township of Cuerden, which is in the parish of Leyland in the county of Lancashire. The surname Cuerten belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Cuerten Early Origins



The surname Cuerten was first found in Lancashire in the village and civil parish of Cuerden in the Borough of Chorley. The village has remained small over the years as a recent census showed only 77 people living there. The place name derives its name from the Welsh word cerdin. Roger the Poitevin (Roger de Poitou), born in Normandy originally held the lands shortly after the Conquest. Cuerden Hall is a country mansion built around 1717 on a site of a previous manor home.

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Cuerten family emigrate to North America: Richard and Margaret Cureton, and their two children who arrived in Philadelphia in 1685; and John Cuerton who sailed to Pennsylvania in 1880.
