Charles Frost The Surname Frost is of Scandinavian origin and is common today in Denmark and in those parts of Europe that were overrun by the Danish pirates a thousand or more years ago. It seems certain that it was brought into England either by the Saxons in the fifth century or by the Danes in the ninth century. The Frosts were in England before the Norman Conquest, since, on the authority of the Domesday Book, Alwin Frost held lands in County Hants in the time of Edward the Confessor ( A D 1042-66 ) The next record of the name is in 1135, in Cambridge, England, when Henry Frost founded the Hospital of the Brothers of St John the Evangelist. Out of this hospital grew St John's College, founded in 1509, which stands on the identical lot given by Henry Frost nearly eight hundred years ago. Henry Frost had a son, Robert, who bestowed a message on the Priors of St John's. Early in the next century the direct descendants of Henry, of Cambridge, settled in County Suffolk.
