Stigall History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Stigall family

The surname Stigall was first found in Norfolk where conjecturally, the surname is descended from the tenant of the lands of Holme, held by Roger d'Evreux from William d'Ecuis who was recorded in the Domesday Book census of 1086. It was from the old Norman name Stigandr.

Stigand (d. 1072), the English prelate, Archbishop of Canterbury, was almost certainly the priest of that name who was appointed in 1020 to the church built by Canute at Assandun, probably Ashington in Essex, to commemorate his victory there. [1]
