Roost History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Early Origins of the Roost family


The surname Roost was first found in Kent 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 the year 1016 when Cenwold Rust held estates in that county.
