There has been suggestion that the Asterling surname arrived in Britain with the Danes, well before 1066. However, it seems that at least one line of Asterling returned to Britain after 13th century crusades, deriving from Strattligen, Switzerland.

Asterling Early Origins



The surname Asterling was first found in Warwickshire. Early on, Sir Peter Stradling, who already held Neath Castle, Glamorgan, Wales, married Joan de Hawey, heiress of St Donat's Castle. He also acquired estates in Somerset and Dorset. In some instances, the surname was Latinized Easter Lingus which was corrupted to Estarling. First on record appears to be sir John Stradling (circa 1230-1293).
