CUSTANCE Family History

Recorded in the spellings of Constance and Custance, this surname is of Roman origins. It derives from the ancient pre-Christian word 'constantia', meaning 'constant', which became the female baptismal name 'Constance', although in its original form in England it was spelt 'Custance'. It is also found as the male given name 'Constantine', and the surname can also derive from this source. The name is rarely if ever recorded in England before the 1066 Norman Conquest, which suggests that either it was a Norman introduction, or more likely was associated with the returning 'Crusaders' after their abortive efforts to 'free' the Holy Land from the infidel.
