Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Longsarne is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived in the county of Cumberland. Longsarne is a topographic surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. In this case the surname was originally derived from the Old English word lang, which means long and the Old Norse word horn simply which means horn. Therefore the original bearers of the surname lived in or near a long piece of land that was shaped like a horn.

Longsarne Early Origins



The surname Longsarne was first found in Cumberland, where they held a family seat from early times. Laugharne (Welsh: Talacharn) is a town in Carmarthenshire, Wales and home to Laugharne Castle which dates back to 1116 and was the meeting place of Henry II of England with Rhys ap Gruffudd in 1171-1172.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Longsarnes to arrive in North America: Thomas Langhorne, who sailed to Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1647; Richard Langhorne, who arrived in Rowley, Masachusetts in 1669; Jeremiah and Grace Langhorne, who came to Pennsylvania in 1684.
