Sacherreval History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The name Sacherreval came to England with the ancestors of the Sacherreval family in the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Sacherreval family lived in Derbyshire. Their name, however, is a reference to Sacheverell, Normandy, the family's place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066.

Early Origins of the Sacherreval family

The surname Sacherreval was first found in Derbyshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Hopwell. At the time of the taking of the Domesday Book in 1086, a survey initiated by Duke William of Normandy after his conquest of England at Hastings in 1066 A.D., the village of Hopwell was held by Ralph Fitzhubert from his overlord, the Bishop of Chester. Hopwell consisted of a village, a mill, 2 churches and a fishery. Conjecturally, it was from this source the Sechevarals are originated.

It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, Anglo-Norman surnames like Sacherreval are characterized by many spelling variations. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages such as Norman French and Latin, even literate people regularly changed the spelling of their names. The variations of the name Sacherreval include Secheral, Secheveral, Secherreveral, Secherevarral, Secheverall, Secheverrall, Sacheveral, Sacheverral, Sacheverall, Sacheverell, Sacheverel, Sacheverrall, Sachaverral, Sacherrevall and many more.

Migration of the Sacherreval family to the New World and Oceana

Faced with the chaos present in England at that time, many English families looked towards the open frontiers of the New World with its opportunities to escape oppression and starvation. People migrated to North America, as well as Australia and Ireland in droves, paying exorbitant rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, but those who did see the shores of North America were welcomed with great opportunity. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America carried the name Sacherreval, or a variant listed above: William Secheral who landed in North America in 1779.

The Sacherreval Motto

The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: En bon foy
Motto Translation: In good faith.
