The Gostick surname is a habitational name, taken on from the place named Goswick in Northumberland. This place name is derived from the Old English words "go-s," meaning "goose," and "wi-c," meaning an "outlying farm."

Gostick Early Origins



The surname Gostick was first found in Bedfordshire (Old English: Bedanfordscir), located in Southeast-central England, formerly part of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Mercia, 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 13th century the family were first seated.
