Sal History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



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

Migration of the Sal family to the New World and Oceana


Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Sal or a variant listed above:
