The roots of the distinguished surname Zastrow lie on the Baltic coast of Pomerania. The name is derived from "Zastrow," the name of a city in Pomerania, and was most likely originally borne by a resident of the city.
The surname Zastrow was first found in Pomerania, where it is believed to have emerged. During the Middle Ages, it was common practice for a new resident of a town to be identified by the name of his native city; thus, Zastrow may have been initially borne as a surname by someone who had migrated from Zastrow to another city. The earliest recorded bearer of the name was Conradus de Zasterow, who lived in Greifswald in 1270.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Zastrow, Zasterow, von Zastrow and others.
