The Norman Conquest of England in 1066 brought much change to the island nation, including many immigrants with new names. Among these immigrants were the ancestors of the Tatersell family, who lived in Lincolnshire, in the parish of Tattersall (Tattershall.)

Early Origins of the Tatersell family


The surname Tatersell was first found in Lincolnshire where William the Conqueror bestowed this and other lands upon one of his followers called Eudo, from whom descended Robert de Tateshall, who built Tattershall castle, and whose son was created Baron Tateshall in 1295. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Another source has a slightly different timeline: "This place was a Roman military post, as two encampments at Tattershall Park in its immediate neighbourhood indicate; and was granted at the Conquest to Eudo, one of William's followers, whose descendants erected a castle about 1440, south-westward from the town. The fortress stood on a moor, and was surrounded by two fosses, which received the waters of the Bain; the principal part was demolished during the parliamentary war. " [3]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Domesday Book of 1086 lists the place as Tateshale. [4]CITATION[CLOSE]

Tatersell Spelling Variations


A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Tattersall, Tattershall, Tateshall, Tatersall, Tatershall, Tatteshall, Tetstall and many more.

Migration of the Tatersell family to the New World and Oceana


Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Tatersell or a variant listed above: Richard Tattersall who settled in New Jersey in 1677 with his wife and children; James Tattershell settled in Virginia in 1727; Christopher Tattersall settled in Savannah, Georgia in 1820..
