Steagall is a name of ancient Anglo-Saxon origin and comes from a family once having lived in the Cheshire area, some say before the Norman invasion of England, in 1066.

Steagall Early Origins



The surname Steagall was first found in Bedfordshire (Old English: Bedanfordscir), located in Southeast-central England, formerly part of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Mercia, where the family held a family seat in early times. The earliest known bearer of the name was Reginald atte Stighel, who was recorded in the Assize Rolls of 1227. The Steagall family branched to other counties at an early date, also appearing in Somerset, where William de Stile and Osmund Atthe Stihele were living in 1229 and 1234 respectively, as well as in Sussex, where William ate Stegel was recorded in the Subsidy Rolls of 1296.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Steagall or a variant listed above: Francis Stiles, who settled in New England in 1630; Joan Stiles, who immigrated to Boston in 1635; Nathaniell Stiles, who came to Virginia in 1639; as did Elizabeth Stiles in 1721.
