Esty Early Origins



The surname Esty was first found in Kent at Eastry, a civil parish and ancient Saxon village that dates back to at least the 9th century when it was listed as Eastorege. By the time of the Domesday Book of 1086, the place name had evolved to Estrei [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Williams, Dr Ann. And G.H. Martin, Eds., Domesday Book A Complete Translation. London: Penguin, 1992. Print. (ISBN 0-141-00523-8)
and literally meant "eastern district or region," from the Old English words "easter" + "ge." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

According to legend, the royal palace of the Saxon kings of Kent stood here. Another legend claim that King Ecgberht of Kent (died c. 673) had his cousins Aethelred and Aethelberht killed within the palace walls. And another story claims Thomas Becket hid in Eastry's caves during his escape in 1164.

Esty Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Esty include Eastday, Eastdye, Eastdai, Estday, Estdye and others.

The Great Migration



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 Esty were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records:
