The name McCash is rooted in the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It was originally a name for someone who worked as a maker of boxes or chests. The surname McCash is derived from the Old French word casse, which means case. Thus, McCash is a metonymic type of occupational surname; it is derived from the principal object associated with the occupation, which in this case was the product produced.

McCash Early Origins



The surname McCash was first found in Cambridgeshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name McCash or a variant listed above: William Cash who settled in Salem, Massachusetts in 1667; married and had William and John and five daughters; John Cass settled in Virginia in 1639; Mary settled in Maryland in 1718.
