The ancestors of the Stoteville family brought their name to England in the wave of migration after the Norman Conquest of 1066. They lived in Cumberland. Their name, however, is a reference to Estouteville-en-Caux, Normandy, the family's place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066.

Stoteville Early Origins



The surname Stoteville was first found in Cumberland where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor and Barons of Lydesdale Castle on the western borders of England and Scotland. This ancient family were derived d'Estouteville-en-Caux in Normandy where the family held the Castle Ambriers and Robert d'Estouteville was Governor of the Castle 11 years prior to the Battle of Hastings, in 1055, and defended it against the Count of Anjou. They also held the Castle of Rames, to the west of Bolbec, in the arrondisement of LeHavre. Of this branch, Roger, brother of Herluin is claimed to be the true ancestor of the Estouteville family. Herluin was founder and first Abbot of the Abbey of Be c. Roger was at the Battle of Hastings as recorded in the Wace poem. They were granted extensive lands in England after the Conquest, particularly in Yorkshire and the north country. They were described as men of great power, warlike habits, and held vast territorial possessions. One branch of the family was found at Dalham in Suffolk in early times. "Dalham Hall, [was] formerly the residence of the family of Stuteville." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



The unstable environment in England at this time caused numerous families to board ships and leave in search of opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad in places like Ireland, Australia, and particularly the New World. The voyage was extremely difficult, however, and only taken at great expense. The cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels caused many to arrive diseased and starving, not to mention destitute from the enormous cost. Still opportunity in the emerging nations of Canada and the United States was far greater than at home and many went on to make important contributions to the cultures of their adopted countries. An examination of many early immigration records reveals that people bearing the name Stoteville arrived in North America very early: Charles Stuteville who settled in Maryland in 1774.
