The Jowsey-Jossey Surname Project
Jowsey/Jossey families of Scotland (mainly Edinburgh), descended from de Josse (Normandy), were prominent in the 16th-17th centuries, then vanished. Known descendants are currently found in Yorkshire, Northumberland (Joicey), Canada, and southern USA (Jossey/Jossy). Jowsey families also emigrated from UK to Australia and New Zealand, principally during the 19th century.
