Early Origins of the Sticknay family
The surname Sticknay was first found in Lincolnshire
at Stickney which is today a linear village and civil parish in the East Lindsey district. The village dates back to the Domesday Book
where it was listed as Stichenai and literally meant "long strip of land between streams." CITATION[CLOSE]
Mills, A.D., Dictionary of English Place-Names. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-19-869156-4)
Hence, conjecturally, the surname is descended from the tenant
of the village and lands of Stickney, held by Ivor Tailbois, a Norman Baron
, who was recorded in the Domesday Book
census of 1086.
