In the Middle Ages, the first family to use the Yorkstoombe surname took the name from a place name with Viking roots. They lived in the village of Yorkstounis, which was in the parish of Corstorphine, Edinburgh.

Yorkstoombe Early Origins



The surname Yorkstoombe 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.

The Great Migration



North America was far from Britain's oppressive monarchy. There, the Scottish found land and freedom, and many even the opportunity to pay back England in the American War of Independence. This brave heritage survives today largely in Clan societies and other patriotic Scottish organizations. Research into passenger and immigration lists has brought forth evidence of the early members of the Yorkstoombe family in North America: Archibald Yorston arrived in New Castle County Delaware in 1741; he moved on to Pennsylvania in 1844.
