The origins of the Salls name lie with England's ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It comes from when the family lived in the county of Cheshire, where they held the estate of Sale. The surname Salls was originally derived form the Old English word soel which refers to a hall. In this case the original bearers of the surname Salls 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



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 Salls family emigrate to North America: 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.
