Oscough
Has anyone come across the name Oscough. My mother and her brother middle name is this. My Grandfather who lived in Garndolbenmaen has it as his middle name but as we are unable to find his birth record born abt 1904/5 I'm stuck as to this unusual name.
Any suggestion would be most helpful.Regards Jeanette

Possibly a variant of Ascough, Itself an altered form of Askew, which derives from a North Yorkshire place name.
It might be worthwhile searching for information on your grandfather using Ascough in place of Oscough. Nothing to lose.
