Norcross History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The Norcross surname is a habitational name taken on from a place near Blackpool; so named from Old English words "norð," meaning "north," and "cros," meaning "cross."


Early Origins of the Norcross family


The surname Norcross was first found in Lancashire 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 the13th century when they held a family seat at Alston and Hothersale in that shire.
