Sacheverall is a name whose history on English soil dates back to the wave of migration that followed the Norman Conquest of England of 1066. The Sacheverall 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.

Sacheverall Early Origins



The surname Sacheverall 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.

Sacheverall Spelling Variations



A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Secheral, Secheveral, Secherreveral, Secherevarral, Secheverall, Secheverrall, Sacheveral, Sacheverral, Sacheverall, Sacheverell, Sacheverel, Sacheverrall, Sachaverral, Sacherrevall and many more.

The Great Migration



Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Sacheverall or a variant listed above: William Secheral who landed in North America in 1779.

Motto

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.
