An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The name Hosegoit originated with the Anglo-Saxon tribes that once ruled Britain. It is derived from the late Old English personal names Osgod and Osgot, which were derived from the Old Norse name Asgautr and the Old Danish and Old Swedish names Asgut and Asgut. The common forms of this name in Normandy were Ansgot and Angot.

Hosegoit Early Origins



The surname Hosegoit was first found in Oxfordshire where they held a family seat from early times and their first records appeared on the census rolls taken by the ancient Kings of Britain to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

The Great Migration



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Hosegoit arrived in North America very early: Christopher Osgood who settled in Boston Massachusetts in 1630; along with Elizabeth; John and Mary Osgood settled in New England in 1630; William, Sarah and four children settled in New England in 1648.
