Edglay Early Origins



The surname Edglay 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."

Edglay Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Edglay family name include Edgell, Eggell, Edgle, Edgele, Edgelle, Edgill, Edghill and many more.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Edglay surname or a spelling variation of the name include : William Edgell, who arrived in New England in 1720-1725; and Robert Etchells, who landed in Allegany (Allegheny) County, Pa in 1868
