Dowsbiggin Early Origins



The surname Dowsbiggin was first found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat in the West Riding as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1379 when John Dowbyggyng held estates in that shire and seated at Dowbiggin in Sedbergh.
