The name Teasdale belongs to the early history of Britain, it's origins lie with the Anglo-Saxons. It is a product of their having lived in the area known as Teesdale found in the counties of Durham and the North Riding of Yorkshire. Teasdale is a topographic surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. During the Middle Ages, as society became more complex, individuals needed a way to be distinguishable from others. Toponymic surnames were developed as a result of this need. Various features in the landscape were used to distinguish people from one another. In this case the original bearers of the surname Teasdale were named due to their close proximity to the river Tees, which flowed between Yorkshire and Durham.

Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time.

Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries.
