Oswin History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Oswin family

The surname Oswin was first found in Essex where they held a family seat. 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 year 1221 when Roger Oswin held estates in that shire.
