Sandon Early Origins



The surname Sandon was first found in Leicestershire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 13th century when they held a family seat in that shire. Richard de Sandun held the estates in 1222.

Sandon has been recorded under many different variations, including Sandon, Sandun, Sanden, Sandan, Sandone and others.

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 Sandon or a variant listed above:

Sandon Settlers in United States in the 17th Century

  • Richard Sandon, who landed in Maryland in 1676

Sandon Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • James Sandon, who arrived in San Francisco, California in 1851
