CASS Family History

This interesting surname recorded as Cass, Cassie, Cassey and Cassy, is of the group of surnames which derive from medieval female personal names. "Cass or Cassie" is a pet-form of the popular female given name "Cassandra", a Greek name meaning "snarer of men", and introduced into Britain about the time of the famous crusades. This was the name of an ill-fated Trojan prophetess of classical legend, who was condemmed to foretell the future but never to be believed! For whatever reason, this story was widely popular in medieval times. The name is also a metronymic in northern England and Scotland, which is so say that it derives from the mothers name, rather than the fathers...
