Savian Early Origins



The surname Savian was first found in Somerset 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 year 1372 when they held lands.

The Great Migration



Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Savian, or a variant listed above: the name represented in many forms and recorded from the mid 17th century in the great migration from Europe. Among the early settlers of New England was John Saffin from Devonshire, who settled in Boston before 1650. A Rich Saffin was granted land in Virginia in 1663.
