casement (n.) early 15c., probably aphetic of O.Fr. dialectal enchassement "window frame," from en- "in," prefix forming verbs, + casse "case, frame" (see CASE (Cf. case) (n.2)) + -MENT (Cf. -ment). Or possibly from Anglo-Latin cassementum, from casse.
The Irish surname is originally Mc Casmonde (attested from 1429), from Mac Asmundr, from Ir. mac "son of" + O.N. Asmundr "god protector."
