The surname Gossett was first found in Cambridgeshire where they held a family seat 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 1279 when Robert and Isabella held estates in that shire.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Gossett, Gosset, Josset, Jossett, Gazzard and many more.
