Solly History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The name Solly belongs to the early history of Britain, it's origins lie with the Anglo-Saxons. It is a product of their having lived in the county of Cheshire, where they held the estate of Sale. The surname Solly was originally derived form the Old English word soel which refers to a hall. In this case the original bearers of the surname Solly were either servants at the hall or resided near a dining hall. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Solly family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries.
