The Anglo-Saxons of Britain first developed the name Sadlar. It was a name given to someone who was a person who made saddles. Sadlar is an occupational surname, which belongs to the category of hereditary surnames. Nicknames form a broad and miscellaneous class of surnames, and can refer directly or indirectly to one's personality, physical attributes, mannerisms, or even their habits of dress. The surname Sadlar comes from the Old English and Old German word sadel, which was an occupational name for a maker of saddles.

Early Origins of the Sadlar family


The surname Sadlar was first found in Wiltshire where they held a family seat from early times at Everley. " This place, at the time of the heptarchy, was the residence of Ina, King of the West Saxons; it subsequently belonged for many generations to the Plantagenets, dukes of Lancaster. The manor was granted by Edward VI., in the first year of his reign, to Edward, Duke of Somerset, Protector, after whose attainder, reverting to the crown, it was given by Queen Elizabeth to Sir Ralph Sadlier, Knt., the royal falconer, whose son and successor had the honour of entertaining James I. at the manor-house, on the 31st of August, 1603."

Migration of the Sadlar family to the New World and Oceana


Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Among the first immigrants of the name Sadlar, or a variant listed above to cross the Atlantic and come to North America were: George Sadler settled in Virginia in 1652 along with Elizabeth, Dorothy, and John; Anthony Sadler settled in New England in 1638; Edmund Sadler settled in Virginia in 1640.

The Sadlar Motto

The Sadlar 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: Servire Deo sapere
Motto Translation: To serve God is to be wise
