Endeshaw History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Endeshaw family

The surname Endeshaw was first found in Staffordshire where the Edensors were originally found. Many of the family moved to Norfolk where the name was more commonly spelt Ensor and held Rolesby Hall from early times. [1] Two references claims that Edensor, a village in Derbyshire is also a likely an ancient homestead of the family. [1] [2] One of the first records of the name was Adam de Ednesovere who was listed in the Assize Rolls in 1247. [2] The Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 list Richard de Edensore in Cambridgeshire. [3]

Migration of the Endeshaw family

Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Endeshaw were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: the name represented in many forms and recorded from the mid 17th century in the great migration from Europe. Migrants settled in the eastern seaboard from Newfoundland, to Maine, to Virginia, the Carolinas, and to the islands..
