Early Origins of the Saidler family
The surname Saidler 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]

Migration of the Saidler family to the New World and Oceana
A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England
at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England
. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: 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 Saidler 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
