An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of England produced the name of Steddy. It was given to a man of mettle, or someone noted for his high spirits. In this case, this surname is derived from the Old English word steda, which means stud-horse or stallion.

Steddy Early Origins



The surname Steddy was first found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat from very early times.

The Great Migration



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Steddy arrived in North America very early:
