Re: CASSELDEN-TYLER Boston Lincolnshire
The name Casselden is Kentish and is very rare although there are records of the name back into the 15-1600s. Its origins probably lie in Cassel just to the north of Dunkirk in France and 'den' is a common ending to place names in Kent reflecting a valley. Most of us with this name are related. I recently found that my 2 x great grandfather James had the surname Castleden, probably misspelt. Our name is pronounced as 'ass' with a soft 'l' and 'dn' rather like a northern pronouncement of 'Castle'.
