The ancient name of Sadle finds its origins with the ancient Anglo-Saxon
culture of Britain. It comes from a name for a person who made saddles. Sadle 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 Sadle comes from the Old English and Old German word sadel,
which was an occupational name for a maker of saddles.
Early Origins of the Sadle family
The surname Sadle 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." CITATION[CLOSE]

were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Sadle family name include Sadler, Sadlar, Sadleigh, Sadlier, Sadleir and many more.

The Sadle 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
