Suddaby is one of the names that was brought to England in the wave of migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Suddaby family lived in Lincolnshire, at Sotebi, from which their name is derived. The surname Suddaby is thus, a local name, which means it derived from the name of a place where members of the family once owned land or where they may have resided.

Suddaby Early Origins



The surname Suddaby was first found in Lincolnshire where Ralph of Sotby held the village and church of Sotebi from the Bishop of Bayeux. This village church is still famous for its Norman chancel arch.

Suddaby Spelling Variations



Before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Sound was what guided spelling in the Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Suddaby family name include Sotheby, Sothaby, Sotherby, Southerby, Southby, Southey and many more.

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Suddaby family to immigrate North America: Henry and Elizabeth Southey who settled in Virginia with their children Mary and Thomas in 1623; Dan Southerby settled in Virginia in 1653; Mary Southerby settled in New England in 1755..
