CAUSBY Family HistoryThis interesting and unusual surname is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and is a locational name from Cosby south-west of Leicester in Leicestershire. The placename is recorded as "Cossebi" in the Domesday Book of 1086, and as "Cosseby" in the 1236 Feet of Fines for that county, and derives from the Olde English pre 7th Century personal name "Cossa" (also the first element of Cosham, Hampshire), with the Olde English "by", from the Old Norse "byr", homestead, settlement; hence, "Cossa's homestead". During the Middle Ages, when migration for the purpose of job-seeking was becoming more common, people often took their former village name as a means of identification, thus resulting in a wide dispersal of the name.
