The ancient roots of the Shallcrosse family name are in the Anglo-Saxon culture. The name Shallcrosse comes from when the family lived in the county of Derbyshire. The surname Shallcrosse is a habitation surname which forms a broad category of surnames that were derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. In this case the family was named after the ancient stone cross that stood in the High Peak forest in the parish of Shackelcross.

Early Origins of the Shallcrosse family


The surname Shallcrosse was first found in Derbyshire at Shallcross, a small village in northwestern portion of the shire. Some claim the name Shallcross comes from an ancient stone cross, known as the Shall Cross which dated back to 832 when St. Paulinus visited the area.

Migration of the Shallcrosse family to the New World and Oceana


At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Shallcrosse arrived in North America very early: Bradford, James and Samuel Shawcross arrived in Philadelphia between 1852 and 1871.
