Oddingsells Spelling Variations
spelling variations. When the Normans became the ruling people of England in the 11th century, they introduced a new language into a society where the main languages of Old and later Middle English had no definite spelling rules. These languages were more often spoken than written, so they blended freely with one another. Contributing to this mixing of tongues was the fact that medieval scribes spelled words according to sound, ensuring that a person's name would appear differently in nearly every document in which it was recorded. The name has been spelled Odingsells, Odingsell, Odingells, Odingell, Odingsleigh, Odingsly, Odingslie, Odingsley and many more.

Migration of the Oddingsells family to the New World and Oceana

Many of these hardy settlers went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Among early immigrants bearing the name Oddingsells or a variant listed above were: Thomas Odingsells who settled in Salem Massachusetts in 1635.
