Studley History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Studley is one of the names that was brought to England in the wave of migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Studley family lived in Dorset, at Stoodleigh.


Early Origins of the Studley family


The surname Studley 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.

Migration of the Studley family to the New World and Oceana


In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Studleys to arrive on North American shores:
