The Slagg name has descended through the generations from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name comes from having lived in the village of Slak in the county of Yorkshire. The original bearers of the surname Slagg were named due to their close proximity to a place where the road becomes less steep. The surname was originally derived from the Old English word slagg, which denoted such as place.

Slagg Early Origins



The surname Slagg was first found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, and were Lords of the Manor of Slak, some say before the Norman Conquest in 1066.

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Slagg were among those contributors:
