The name Saddingtomb was carried to England in the enormous movement of people that followed the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Saddingtomb family lived in Leicestershire, at Sadington, from whence they took their name.

Saddingtomb Early Origins



The surname Saddingtomb was first found in Leicestershire where they held a family seat as Lords of the manor of Sadington, a village and parish in that shire. At the time of the taking of the Domesday Book, [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

a census initiated by Duke William of Normandy in 1086 after his conquest of England at Hastings in 1066, in the survey Sadington was shown to be King's land, and consisted of a mill, and a hamlet. The village was anciently called Setintone in pre-conquest days.

Saddingtomb Spelling Variations



Endless spelling variations are a prevailing characteristic of Norman surnames. Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules, and the introduction of Norman French added an unfamiliar ingredient to the English linguistic stew. French and Latin, the languages of the court, also influenced spellings. Finally, Medieval scribes generally spelled words according to how they sounded, so one person was often referred to by different spellings in different documents. The name has been spelled Sadington, Saddington, Sadingtone, Saddingtone, Sadingtown and many more.

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious persecution within England at the time, many English families left for the various British colonies abroad. The voyage was extremely difficult, though, and the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving. But for those who made it, the trip was most often worth it. Many of the families who arrived went on to make valuable contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families reveals a number of immigrants bearing the name Saddingtomb or a variant listed above: Jonas Saddington who settled in Virginia in 1637; Thomas Saddington settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1880.
