The surname Edghill was first found in Essex where the family name was first referenced in the year 1278 when William and Richard Eggell held estates in that county. Other early records revealed that some of the family resided at Standerwick in Somerset. "Standerwick Court, the seat of Admiral Harry Edgell, is a handsome mansion, in the grounds of which are the remains of an ancient encampment, supposed to have been the connecting station between Bath and Alfred's tower at Stourton."

Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.

Only recently has spelling become standardized in the English language. As the English language evolved in the Middle Ages, the spelling of names changed also. The name Edghill has undergone many spelling variations, including Edgell, Eggell, Edgle, Edgele, Edgelle, Edgill, Edghill and many more.

To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Edghill were among those contributors:
