Glass Genealogy & History

Glass is an Anglo-Saxon name that occurs primarily in the westernmost of the counties in the West Midlands. As one would think, it refers to a glass-blower, from the Old English "glaes", meaning glass, which itself is related to the word "glaed", which means shining. Glass family history gets into the books with the marriage of Ricardus Glase to Margeriam Higgons at Pontesbury, Shropshire, in 1540. Glass family history lays claim to many famous people, such as second cousins radio host Ira Glass and minimalist composer Philip Glass, as well as Rear Admiral Henry Glass.
