Musa Early Origins



The surname Musa was first found in Derbyshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 11th century when they held estates in that shire. The parish of Miserden in Gloucestershire has particular significance to the family. "This place derives its name from the family of Musard, who had a castle here, of which the foundation, with some broken fragments of wall, still remains." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
