The many generations and branches of the Sadleyr family can all place the origins of their surname with the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name reveals that an early member worked as a person who made saddles. Sadleyr 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 Sadleyr comes from the Old English and Old German word sadel, which was an occupational name for a maker of saddles.

Sadleyr Early Origins



The surname Sadleyr 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."

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Sadleyr family emigrate to North America: 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.

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