Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Steggall is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived in the Cheshire area, some say before the Norman invasion of England, in 1066.

Steggall Early Origins



The surname Steggall 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 Steggall 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



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Steggalls to arrive in North America:

Steggall Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • Thomas Steggall, who was naturalized in Michigan in 1882

Steggall Settlers in New Zealand in the 19th Century

  • Robert M. Steggall, who arrived in Auckland, New Zealand aboard the ship "Romulus" in 1862
  • Mary Ann Steggall, who arrived in Auckland, New Zealand aboard the ship "Romulus" in 1862
