Stucklass is one of the thousands of new names that the Norman Conquest brought to England in 1066. The Stucklass family lived in Staffordshire. The name was derived from the Old English words stocc, meaning tree trunk, and leah, meaning clearing, and indicates that the original bearer of the name lived at or near a wooded clearing.

Stucklass Early Origins



The surname Stucklass was first found in Staffordshire where they were conjecturally descended from two Norman nobles, brothers in arms, named Rafwin and Alwin, who were under tenants of the Bishop of Chester at Yoxall in that shire.

Stucklass 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 Stockley, Stockleigh, Stokeley, Stuckless, Stuckley 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 Stucklass or a variant listed above: George Stockley who settled in Barrow Harbour, Bona Vista Bay, Newfoundland, in 1783; Samuel Stockley and his family held Pinchards Island in 1802; and James Stockley settled in Greenspond in 1815.
