JOSLYN Family History

This most interesting surname is of Old Germanic origin, and is one of the many surnames which have originated from the Germanic personal name "Gautselin, Goz(e)lin", Old French "Goscelin, Gosselin, Joscelin", which was known in England before the Norman Conquest (1066) but was spread by the Normans, among whom it was very popular. The personal name itself is a diminutive from a short form of the various compound names aving as their first element the tribal name "Gaut" (apparently the same as the Olde English pre 7th Century "Geatas", the Scandinavian people to which Beowulf belonged, and also akin to the name of the Goths).
