'The Genealogist' (NS2, p7) reports that this family "by tradition derives its name and descent from Oswald, the tenth son of Ida, the Flame-bearer. The prefix "Young" having been assumed at an early period by the descendants of the Saxon Oswalds, Oswys, and Osbands, for the sake of distinction, the name gradually became corrupted - "Young-Oswin," "Young-Osban," "Younghosban," - to the present form of spelling it."
