In the Middle Ages, Viking immigrants settled the shores of Scotland and named many places. The Yourstolm name was then created from one of these place names. They lived in the village of Yorkstounis, which was in the parish of Corstorphine, Edinburgh.

Yourstolm Early Origins



The surname Yourstolm 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



In their new home, Scots found land and opportunity, and some even fought for their new freedom in the American War of Independence. Some, who remained loyal to the crown went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. In this century, the ancestors of both of these groups have begun recovering their illustrious national heritage through Clan societies and other Scottish historical organizations. Early immigration and passenger lists indicate many people bearing the Yourstolm name: Archibald Yorston arrived in New Castle County Delaware in 1741; he moved on to Pennsylvania in 1844.
