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

The name Stogsdill first arose amongst the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is derived from their having lived in either of the settlements called Stockdale in Yorkshire or Cumberland. The surname Stogsdill 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 Stogsdill has appeared include Stockdale, Storkdale, Stackdall, Stackdale, Stockdall, Stockall, Stockdell, Stackdell and many more.

First found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Lockington, some say, before the Norman Conquest 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 Stogsdill arrived in North America very early: Edward Stockdell settled in Virginia in 1623; John Stockdell in Virginia in 1635; Joseph Stackdale settled in Fort Cumberland, Nova Scotia in 1774; Thomas Stockdale settled in Barbados in 1682.

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: Omnia mei donna Deo
Motto Translation: All my goods are the gift of God.
