Stantitch is a name that came to England in the 11th century wave of migration that was set off by the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Stantitch family lived at Standish (St Nicolas), a parish in the union of Wheaten hurst, Upper division of the hundred of Whitstone, in Gloucestershire.

Stantitch Early Origins



The surname Stantitch 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]

Stantitch Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Stantitch has been recorded under many different variations, including Standish, Standishe, Standich, Standidge and others.

The Great Migration



To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Stantitchs were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America: 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.
