Lancaster Genealogy & History

Lancaster is a locational English name, from the eponymous city in Lancashire. Initially there were a few variations, such as Loncastre in the 1086 Domesday Book, and Lanecastrum in the 1094 Pipe Rolls. The name itself comes from the river Lune, on which Lancaster is situated, and the Old English ceaster, a term for a Roman fort. Lancaster family history enters the books with William de Lonecastre, enrolled in the Staffordshire Cartulary in 1175. Lancaster genealogy includes a few well-known persons, like British actress Elsa Lanchester, British editorial cartoonist Osbert Lancaster, and actor Burt Lancaster.
