GARSIDE Family History
This interesting surname is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and is a locational name from Gartside or Garside in Oldham, Lancashire. The placename derives from the Middle English "garth", an enclosure (a development of the Old Norse "garthr"), with the Olde English pre 7th Century "side" a hill slope; hence "enclosure on the hill slope". Locational surnames were developed when former inhabitants of a place moved to another area, usually to seek work, and were best identified by the name of their birthplace.
