The name Endertomb is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is a product of when the family lived in a township and estate by the name of Anderton in the county of Lancashire, located north of Ince on the coast north of Liverpool.

Endertomb Early Origins



The surname Endertomb was first found in Lancashire from very ancient times, they being from the town of Anderton in that county, located north of Ince on the coast north of Liverpool. "This place gave name to a family which was seated here at an early period; it comprises about 800 acres, and has coal-mines, and good stone-quarries." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.

One of the more famous branches held Euxton Hall at Euxton in Lancashire. "Over the portal, and also on two old chimneypieces in the house, are to be seen the arms of the Molyneuxs and Andertons quartered; William Anderton, Esq., having married Mary, daughter of the fifth viscount Molyneux. The ceilings of the entrance-hall and staircase, richly ornamented by Concillio, are in good preservation, and the mansion has been considerably altered and enlarged by William Ince Anderton, Esq., the present possessor." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Endertombs to arrive in North America: John Anderton, who settled in Virginia in 1651; George Anderton, who settled in Barbados in 1667; John Anderton, who settled in Nevis in 1663; Mary Anderton, who settled in Maryland in 1690.
