Ainscough is a french hugenot name. When William the Conqueror invaded England, he brought his army of knights. These knights from Normandy were given land for their effort during the invasion and were placed as his head of government in each shire. Wiki encyclopedia has info on a plaque placed in a cathedral in Normandy before leaving for England. This plaque has a list of knights. There is 2 knights listed as "Ansgot" which would have been french spelling for Ainscough. Normandy was the protestant part of France. French hugenot meant French protestant.
