Groscost was spelled in Germany as Grosskasten, and earlier in German France as Grosskapfsten,or Grosskospfsten. The folks in that region of France now spell their names Groscost, the same as our family does in America. The first immigrant with our name was Hans Phillip Groscost (it is spelled that way by the British Captain I suppose as Hans could not write). The first immigrant Groscup was Paul Grosscup who entered a few years later, and from whom most Groscups have descended. There may be a possibility that the American Groskopf, Groscup, and Groscost have come from the same stock with variations from the original spelling of Grosskopfst found in the records of the 1600's in Breuschwickersheim German Reformed church, but I have not researched that possibility.
