The ancestors of the bearers of the Sally family name are thought have lived in ancient Anglo-Saxon England. They were first found in the county of Cheshire, where they held the estate of Sale. The surname Sally was originally derived form the Old English word soel which refers to a hall. In this case the original bearers of the surname Sally were either servants at the hall or resided near a dining hall. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Sally 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 Sally 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 Sally or a variant listed above:

Sally Settlers in United States in the 17th Century

  • John Sally, who arrived in Maryland in 1673
  • Edmd Sally, who landed in Virginia in 1695

Sally Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • Jacob, John, Patrick and William Sally settled in Philadelphia between 1840 and 1870
