Athilstan History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Athilstan family

The surname Athilstan was first found in Kent where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1195 when Athelstan held a family seat in that county.

Migration of the Athilstan family to the New World and Oceana

For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Athilstan or a variant listed above: Reinholt Athelstone, aged 16, who arrived at Ellis Island from Alberta, Canada, in 1908.
