The vast movement of people that followed the Norman Conquest of England of 1066 brought the Stanndedge family name to the British Isles. They lived at Standish (St Nicolas), a parish in the union of Wheaten hurst, Upper division of the hundred of Whitstone, in Gloucestershire.

Stanndedge Early Origins



The surname Stanndedge was first found in Gloucestershire where they are conjecturally they are descended from Earl Hugh of Standish, who was undertenant of the Archbishop of York. However, Standish (St.Wilfrid), is a parish, in the unions of Wigan and Chorley, hundred of Leyland, Lancashire. It is believed that this place was anciently named Stanedich and was one of the largest towns in the south of Lancashire in which the Saxons built fortified castles for the residence of their chiefs. The castle of Standish, or its ruins have long been lost, but one of the first records of the surname was Jordan de Standish who was named in connection with the manor in area during the reign of Edward I. Standish Hall is a large brick mansion of irregular form, long the seat of the Standish family. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Stanndedge Spelling Variations



Anglo-Norman names are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. When the Normans became the ruling people of England in the 11th century, they introduced a new language into a society where the main languages of Old and later Middle English had no definite spelling rules. These languages were more often spoken than written, so they blended freely with one another. Contributing to this mixing of tongues was the fact that medieval scribes spelled words according to sound, ensuring that a person's name would appear differently in nearly every document in which it was recorded. The name has been spelled Standish, Standishe, Standich, Standidge and others.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that plagued their homeland made the frontiers of the New World an attractive prospect. Thousands migrated, aboard cramped disease-ridden ships. They arrived sick, poor, and hungry, but were welcomed in many cases with far greater opportunity than at home in England. Many of these hardy settlers went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Among early immigrants bearing the name Stanndedge or a variant listed above were: Dorothy Standich who settled in Virginia in 1635; Sarah Standidge settled in New England in 1753; James Standish settled in Virginia in 1623; George Standish with his wife Dorothy settled in Virginia in 1643. and Captain Miles Standish sailed on the "Mayflower" in 1620.
