Sturdy Early Origins



The surname Sturdy was first found in Wiltshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Norman influence of English history dominated after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. The family name was first referenced in the 11th century when they held estates in that shire.
