Lushintoomb History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
- Origins Available:
The Anglo-Saxon name Lushintoomb comes from the family having resided in the village of Lushington which was located in the county of Kent during the 12th century.
Early Origins of the Lushintoomb family
The surname Lushintoomb was first found in Kent where this surname is " local, 'of Lushington.' I cannot find the place. Manifestly of Kentish extraction."  However, many of the records are quite late: Thomas Lushington, Kent, Register of the University of Oxford (1606-1607) and in 1687, George Walker and Ann Lushington were married in Kent. One branch of the family was found in the parish of Frinton in Essex. "The living is a discharged rectory, valued in the king's books at £7. 6. 8., and in the gift of the family of Lushington: the tithes have been commuted for £150, and the glebe comprises 27 acres."

Migration of the Lushintoomb family
In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Lushintoombs to arrive on North American shores: William Lushington settled in Delaware in 1682.
