The surname Ossowscy was first found in West Prussia, Poland and Pomerelia, where the name emerged in mediaeval times as one of the notable families in the western region. The surname is generally understood to be a habitation name. From the 13th century onwards the surname was identified with the great social and economic evolution which made this territory a landmark contributor to the development of the nation.
