The surname Somersall was first found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat. 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 1379 when John of Somerscales held the estates. Also recorded as living at that time was his son, John Somerscales, Junior.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Summerscales, Somerscales, Sumerscales, Sommerscales, Summersgill, Sommersgill, Sumerskill, Somerskill, Summerskill, Sommerskill, Sommerscales, Somersall, Somershall, Summersall and many more.
