Lussintum History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
- Origins Available:
The ancestors of the bearers of the Lussintum family name are thought have lived in ancient Anglo-Saxon England. They were first found in the village of Lushington which was located in the county of Kent during the 12th century.
Early Origins of the Lussintum family
The surname Lussintum 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."

Lussintum Spelling Variations
Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Lussintum include Lushington, Lussintone, Lussington and others.

Migration of the Lussintum family
Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Lussintum or a variant listed above: William Lushington settled in Delaware in 1682.
