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

Sale Early Origins



The surname Sale was first found in Cheshire but the family can be found throughout ancient Britain in early years. The Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 list Robert a la Sale. Placita de Quo Warranto, temp. Edward I-III lists Nicholas de la Sale, temp. 20 Edward I and William de la Sale. Robert de la Sale was Bailiff of Norwich in 1327. [2]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]

Sale Spelling Variations



Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Sale include Sale, Sail, Sales, Salle, Salley, Sally, Sallete, Sallett and many more.

The Great Migration



Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Sale or a variant listed above:
