Stotesbury History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The Norman Conquest of England in 1066 added many new elements to an already vibrant culture. Among these were thousands of new names. The Stotesbury family lived in Northamptonshire, at the Manor of Stoteberie.

Early Origins of the Stotesbury family


The surname Stotesbury was first found in Northamptonshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Stoteberie. Conjecturally, they are descended from either Hugh, Landric or Odbert who held the lands of Stotebury at the time of the taking of the Domesday Book survey in 1086 A.D. They held the lands from Giles the brother of Ansculf, a Norman noble whom received the grant from Duke William of Normandy for his assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Stotesbury Spelling Variations


Endless spelling variations are a prevailing characteristic of Norman surnames. Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules, and the introduction of Norman French added an unfamiliar ingredient to the English linguistic stew. French and Latin, the languages of the court, also influenced spellings. Finally, Medieval scribes generally spelled words according to how they sounded, so one person was often referred to by different spellings in different documents. The name has been spelled Stotesbury, Stotberry, Stotherburry, Stotherberry, Stotterbury, Stotterbnery, Stotterberrie, Stoteberie and many more.

Migration of the Stotesbury family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the political and religious persecution within England at the time, many English families left for the various British colonies abroad. The voyage was extremely difficult, though, and the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving. But for those who made it, the trip was most often worth it. Many of the families who arrived went on to make valuable contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families reveals a number of immigrants bearing the name Stotesbury or a variant listed above: Henry Stottberry who landed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1733.
