Stotler is an ancient Norman name that arrived in England after the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Stotler family lived in Dorset, at Stoodleigh.

Stotler Early Origins



The surname Stotler was first found in Dorset where they were granted lands by King William for their assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D. The lands were originally held by Edrik of Stodlege, a Norman knight, and were recorded in the Domesday Book survey of 1086 A.D. They also held lands in Devon where Robert held Stoodleigh near Oakford from Ralph de Pomeroy, and Arnold held Stoodleigh from Walter de Douai in West Buckland, also in Devon.

Stotler Spelling Variations



Multitudes of spelling variations are a hallmark of Anglo Norman names. Most of these names evolved in the 11th and 12th century, in the time after the Normans introduced their own Norman French language into a country where Old and Middle English had no spelling rules and the languages of the court were French and Latin. To make matters worse, medieval scribes spelled words according to sound, so names frequently appeared differently in the various documents in which they were recorded. The name was spelled Stoodley, Studley, Stoodly, Studly, Stodlege, Stoodlege and many more.

The Great Migration



Because of this political and religious unrest within English society, many people decided to immigrate to the colonies. Families left for Ireland, North America, and Australia in enormous numbers, traveling at high cost in extremely inhospitable conditions. The New World in particular was a desirable destination, but the long voyage caused many to arrive sick and starving. Those who made it, though, were welcomed by opportunities far greater than they had known at home in England. Many of these families went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Stotler or a variant listed above:
