Sayle is a name of ancient Anglo-Saxon origin and comes from a family once having lived in the county of Cheshire, where they held the estate of Sale. The surname Sayle was originally derived form the Old English word soel which refers to a hall. In this case the original bearers of the surname Sayle were either servants at the hall or resided near a dining hall. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

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 Sayle or a variant listed above:
