The name Estutevile was carried to England in the enormous movement of people that followed the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Estutevile family lived in Cumberland. Their name, however, is a reference to Estouteville-en-Caux, Normandy, the family's place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066.

Estutevile Early Origins



The surname Estutevile was first found in Cumberland where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor and Barons of Lydesdale Castle on the western borders of England and Scotland. This ancient family were derived d'Estouteville-en-Caux in Normandy where the family held the Castle Ambriers and Robert d'Estouteville was Governor of the Castle 11 years prior to the Battle of Hastings, in 1055, and defended it against the Count of Anjou. They also held the Castle of Rames, to the west of Bolbec, in the arrondisement of LeHavre. Of this branch, Roger, brother of Herluin is claimed to be the true ancestor of the Estouteville family. Herluin was founder and first Abbot of the Abbey of Be c. Roger was at the Battle of Hastings as recorded in the Wace poem. They were granted extensive lands in England after the Conquest, particularly in Yorkshire and the north country. They were described as men of great power, warlike habits, and held vast territorial possessions. One branch of the family was found at Dalham in Suffolk in early times. "Dalham Hall, [was] formerly the residence of the family of Stuteville." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Estutevile Spelling Variations



Multitudes of spelling variations are a hallmark of Anglo Norman names. Most of these names evolved in the 11th and 12th century, in the time after the Normans introduced their own Norman French language into a country where Old and Middle English had no spelling rules and the languages of the court were French and Latin. To make matters worse, medieval scribes spelled words according to sound, so names frequently appeared differently in the various documents in which they were recorded. The name was spelled Stutteville, Stuteville, Stootville, Stooteville, Stutville, Stutvill, Stuttvill, Stutevill, Stuttevill, Stoutteville, Stouteville, d`Estouteville, Estouteville, Estuteville, Estutteville, Estoutteville and many more.

The Great Migration



Because of this political and religious unrest within English society, many people decided to immigrate to the colonies. Families left for Ireland, North America, and Australia in enormous numbers, traveling at high cost in extremely inhospitable conditions. The New World in particular was a desirable destination, but the long voyage caused many to arrive sick and starving. Those who made it, though, were welcomed by opportunities far greater than they had known at home in England. Many of these families went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Estutevile or a variant listed above: Charles Stuteville who settled in Maryland in 1774.
