Stollings is an ancient Norman name that arrived in England after the Norman Conquest of 1066. The name Stollings comes from the Norman name Steflingefled.

Stollings Early Origins



The surname Stollings was first found in Yorkshire at Stillingfleet, a village and civil parish in the Selby district of North Yorkshire. The place dates back at least The Domesday Book where it was listed as Steflingefled from the Old English personal name + inga + fleot and literally meant "stretch of river belonging to the family or followers of a man called Styfel."

Stollings Spelling Variations



A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Stillington, Stillingfleet and others.

The Great Migration



Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Stollings or a variant listed above:

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Magna est veritas
Motto Translation: Great is truth.
