ASHCROFT Family HistoryThis surname, with variant spellings Ascroft(e) and Ascraft, is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and derives from the Olde English pre 7th Century "oesc" meaning "ash", plus "croft", a paddock or arable enclosure, and was originally given either as a topographical name to one resident in an enclosure where ash trees grew, or as a locational name from any of the places named with the above elements. These places include Ashcroft, south of Wentworth in the West Riding of Yorkshire, and Ashcroft, near Duraley in Gloucestershire. The surname was first recorded in the latter part of the 13th Century (see below), and recordings from English Church Registers include: the christening of Alice Ascrofte, an infant, on March 7th 1591, in Wigan, Lancashire, and the marriage of Elnor Ascraft and John Chaplen on April 18th 1607, in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire...
