CAUSEY Family History

This is a true Anglo-French medieval surname of location and description. Like the similar names such as Townsend or Bitheway, it literally describes either somebody who lived by the 'causeway', or who came from the village called 'Pays de Caux' in Normandy. Recorded in the spellings of Cawsey, Causey and Cawsy, it is one of the earliest surnames on record with early examples including William le Caucais in the Curia Regis Rolls of Nottingham for the year 1212, and Robert Causeys, also known as Causay, being found in the Subsidy Rolls of Sussex for the years 1327 - 1332.
