Early Origins of the Tassiť family


The surname Tassiť was first found in Belgium, where the name became noted for its many branches in the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. The name was first recorded in Hainault, a province in Belgium, based on the ancient county of Hainaut. Within this province the notable towns are Mons, the capital city, Charleroi, Tournai, Soignies and Thuin. In their later history the surname became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into a most influential family.

Baltus Van Tassel and Katrina Van Tassel were characters in Washington Irving's The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.
