Edgitt History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Early Origins of the Edgitt family


The surname Edgitt was first found in Suffolk 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 1230 when Stephen Egede held estates in that county.

Migration of the Edgitt family to the New World and Oceana


To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Edgitt family emigrate to North America: Christopher Egett, who settled in Ontario in 1871; and Barbara Egede, who arrived in New York, NY in 1885.
