Tettershaw is one of the thousands of new names that the Norman Conquest brought to England in 1066. The Tettershaw family lived in Lincolnshire, in the parish of Tattersall (Tattershall.)

Tettershaw Early Origins



The surname Tettershaw 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]

Tettershaw Spelling Variations



It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, Anglo-Norman surnames like Tettershaw are characterized by many spelling variations. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages such as Norman French and Latin, even literate people regularly changed the spelling of their names. The variations of the name Tettershaw include Tattersall, Tattershall, Tateshall, Tatersall, Tatershall, Tatteshall, Tetstall and many more.

The Great Migration



Faced with the chaos present in England at that time, many English families looked towards the open frontiers of the New World with its opportunities to escape oppression and starvation. People migrated to North America, as well as Australia and Ireland in droves, paying exorbitant rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, but those who did see the shores of North America were welcomed with great opportunity. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America carried the name Tettershaw, 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..
