Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Ramstine is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived in the village of Ramsden found in various locations in England including the counties of Essex, Oxford, Lancashire and the West Riding of Yorkshire. This local name was originally derived from the Old English word ramden which refers to those individuals who lived in the small glen.

Ramstine Early Origins



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

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Ramstines to arrive in North America: John Ramsden, who came to Virginia in 1642; Margaret Ramsden, who arrived in Barbados with her husband in 1665; and Mary Ramsden, her husband and four children, who arrived in Philadelphia in 1820..
