The ancestors of the Yourstume family 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.

Yourstume Early Origins



The surname Yourstume 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



The New World was far from the oppressive regime of the old country. It was a place where there was more land than people and political and religious freedom were far easier to come by. Many Scots even got the chance to fight for their freedom in the American War of Independence. In recent years, interest in this heritage has been generated by Clan societies and regular highland games in North America. An examination of early immigration and passenger lists has revealed many people bearing the Yourstume name: Archibald Yorston arrived in New Castle County Delaware in 1741; he moved on to Pennsylvania in 1844.
