The history of the name Osgooode begins with the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is derived from the late Old English personal names Osgod and Osgot, which were derived from the Old Norse name Asgautr and the Old Danish and Old Swedish names Asgut and Asgut. The common forms of this name in Normandy were Ansgot and Angot.

Early Origins of the Osgooode family


The surname Osgooode was first found in Oxfordshire where they held a family seat from early times and their first records appeared on the census rolls taken by the ancient Kings of Britain to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

Migration of the Osgooode family to the New World and Oceana


For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Osgooode or a variant listed above: Christopher Osgood who settled in Boston Massachusetts in 1630; along with Elizabeth; John and Mary Osgood settled in New England in 1630; William, Sarah and four children settled in New England in 1648.
