The ancestors of the name Saile date back to the days of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from their residence in the county of Cheshire, where they held the estate of Sale. The surname Saile was originally derived form the Old English word soel which refers to a hall. In this case the original bearers of the surname Saile were either servants at the hall or resided near a dining hall. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

"About the time of Edward I., Thomas, son of William De la Sale, held twelve acres of land in Ickleford, Hertfordshire. According to Cussans, the Hertfordshire Sales hailed from Scotland nearly two centuries ago, and he mentions Francis Sale, a gentleman who was married at Ashwell in 1694." [3]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Sailes to arrive on North American shores: Edward Sale settled in Boston in 1635; William, James, Mary and John Sale settled in Charles Town, South Carolina, in 1767; John Sales and his wife settled in Salem in 1630.
