The Anglo-Saxon name Salltmarshe comes from when the family resided in the township of Saltmarsh which was in the parish of Howden in the West Riding of Yorkshire. Salltmarshe is a topographic surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. During the Middle Ages people were very conscious of the variations in their surroundings including the soil types. In this case the original bearers of the surname Salltmarshe were named due to their close proximity to a salt marsh.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Salltmarshe or a variant listed above: Thomas Saltmarsh who was banished to Barbados in 1685.
