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

In ancient Anglo-Saxon England, the ancestors of the Tysdal surname lived in the area known as Teesdale found in the counties of Durham and the North Riding of Yorkshire. Tysdal is a topographic surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. During the Middle Ages, as society became more complex, individuals needed a way to be distinguishable from others. Toponymic surnames were developed as a result of this need. Various features in the landscape were used to distinguish people from one another. In this case the original bearers of the surname Tysdal were named due to their close proximity to the river Tees, which flowed between Yorkshire and Durham.

Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Tysdal or a variant listed above: Elizabeth Tisdell settled in Barbados in 1686; Charles Tisdall settled in Virginia in 1730; Margaret, James, and Jane Tisdale settled in Charles Town [Charleston], South Carolina in 1763.
