The distinguished surname Hoste is one of the many surnames that first came to England in the wake of the Norman Conquest of 1066. The name is derived from the Old French "oste" or "hoste," meaning "host," and was most likely first borne by an inn-keeper.

Hoste Early Origins



The surname Hoste was first found in Somerset during the Middle Ages, when hereditary surnames first began to appear in England. Due to the occupational origins of Hoste, it is likely that the surname emerged independently in different regions during the medieval period, creating several early branches of the Hoste family. The earliest recorded bearer of the name was Elias le Host, who was listed in the 1254 Assize Rolls of Somerset.

Hoste Spelling Variations



A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Host, Hoste, Ost, Hust and others.

The Great Migration



Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Hoste or a variant listed above:
