Scottish annals reveal that the Yorkstoomb surname came from a place name in Scotland, named with Viking elements. The name was no doubt taken on when they lived in the village of Yorkstounis, which was in the parish of Corstorphine, Edinburgh.

Early Origins of the Yorkstoomb family


The surname Yorkstoomb 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.

Migration of the Yorkstoomb family to the New World and Oceana


Those who made the voyage were greeted with ample opportunity to acquire land and a political climate far away from the oppressive monarchy of the old country. They settled along the east coast of what would become Canada and the United States. In the American War of Independence, those who remained loyal to England traveled north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. In this century, many Scots living in North America have begun to recover their rich heritage through festivals, highland games, and Clan societies. An examination of passenger and immigration lists has shown early immigrants bearing the name Yorkstoomb: Archibald Yorston arrived in New Castle County Delaware in 1741; he moved on to Pennsylvania in 1844.
