CUSSEN Family HistoryRecorded in various spellings including Cousin(s), Cozen(s), Cussen(s), Cushing, and Cushion, this is an Anglo-Irish surname. However spelt it derives from the pre 10th century Olde French words "cousin or cusin", from the Latin "consobrinus", which in the Middle Ages, had the general meaning of close relative or kinsman. The surname would thus have denoted a person related in some way to a prominent figure in the neighbourhood. In some cases it may be also have been a nickname for someone who used the term "cousin" frequently as a familiar term of address.
