Tatershall is one of the names that was brought to England in the wave of migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Tatershall family lived in Lincolnshire, in the parish of Tattersall (Tattershall.)

Tatershall Early Origins



The surname Tatershall 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]

The Great Migration



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 Tatershalls to arrive on North American shores: 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..
