Where did the English Statham family come from? What is the English Statham family crest and coat of arms? When did the Statham family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Statham family history?

The Anglo-Saxon name Statham comes from when the family resided in the settlement called Statham in the county of Cheshire. The surname Statham belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.


Before English spelling was standardized a few hundred years ago, spelling variations of names were a common occurrence. Elements of Latin, French and other languages became incorporated into English through the Middle Ages, and name spellings changed even among the literate. The variations of the surname Statham include Statham, Stathem, Stathum and others.

First found in Cheshire where they held a family seat from very early times.

A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants:
