CASE Family History

This interesting and unusual surname has two possible origins, the first of which is from the early medieval English metonymic occupational surname for a maker of boxes, chests or other wooden receptacles. The name from this source derives from the Anglo-Norman French word "case, casse", case, container, from the Latin "capsa", a derivative of the verb "capere", to hold, contain. Job-descriptive surnames originally denoted the actual occupation of the namebearer, and later became hereditary. The first recording of the surname below, is from this source, and one Clais Casemaker is recorded in London in 1367. The second possible origin for the name is from a variant form of "Cass", a medieval female given name which was a short or pet, form of "Cassandra"...
