The chronicles of the Yorkstint family suggest that their ancestors may have been Viking settlers. Their surname comes from a place name of Norse origins, from when they lived in the village of Yorkstounis, which was in the parish of Corstorphine, Edinburgh.

Yorkstint Early Origins



The surname Yorkstint was first found in Edinburghshire, a former county, now part of the Midlothian council area, where they held a family seat at Yorkstounis in the parish of Corstophine, some say, from about the 12th century.
