First found in Lincolnshire at Stickney which is today a linear village and civil parish in the East Lindsey district. The village dates back to the Domesday Book where it was listed as Stichenai and literally meant "long strip of land between streams."  Hence, conjecturally, the surname is descended from the tenant of the village and lands of Stickney, held by Ivor Tailbois, a Norman Baron, who was recorded in the Domesday Book census of 1086.
