Where did the English Dugdale family come from? What is the English Dugdale family crest and coat of arms? When did the Dugdale family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Dugdale family history?

The ancient roots of the Dugdale family name are in the Anglo-Saxon culture. The name Dugdale comes from when the family lived in either the settlement of Dug Dale, which is found in Warter in the East Riding of Yorkshire, or the place called Dugdales in Great Mitton, which is in the West Riding of Yorkshire. The surname Dugdale belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

One relatively recent invention that did much to standardize English spelling was the printing press. However, before its invention even the most literate people recorded their names according to sound rather than spelling. The spelling variations under which the name Dugdale has appeared include Dugdale, Dugdall, Dugdill, Dugdell, Dougdall and many more.

First found in Lancashire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Dugdale arrived in North America very early:

The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Pestes patria pigrities
Motto Translation: Sloth is the plague of one's country.
