An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The history of the distinguished English surname Dustman begins before the fateful Norman Conquest of 1066. The name is Anglo-Saxon in origin, and is derived from the Old English "dust," meaning "dust." This name was probably first bestowed as a nickname, either on someone with pale skin or hair, someone considered to be of little worth, or a laborer.

Dustman Early Origins



The surname Dustman was first found in the county of Oxford, where Ulf Dust was recorded as early as 1030. The nickname origins of Dustman make it likely that the surname emerged independently in different English counties, thus creating several different branches of the Dustman family during the Middle Ages.
