Sergeant Family Crest
Sergeant Family Crest
This interesting name is of English and French origin and is occupational for a servant, from the Middle English (1200 - 1500) and Old French "sergent", from the Latin "serviens" a derivative of "servire", meaning to serve. However, the word also developed specialized meanings, such as a technical term for a tenant by military service below the rank of a knight and as the name for certain administrative and legal officials in different localities. The name development since 1185 (see below) includes: Robert le Serjaunt (1221, Leicestershire), Thomas le Sergeant (1266, Staffordshire), John Sargeant (1396, Suffolk) and Thomas Sarjeant (1689, Yorkshire). The modern surname can be found as Sergeant, Sargant, Sargeaunt, Sargent and Sergent, to name a few. An early emigrant to the American Colonies was Thomas Sergeant (23 years), who sailed from London on board the "Peter Bonaventure" in April 1635, bound for the Barbados. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Edric le Sergant, which was dated 1185, in the "Danelaw Documents of Lincolnshire", during the reign of King Henry 11, known as "The Builder of Churches", 1154 - 1189. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.

Stanley, Sir William Family Coat of Arms
Stanley, Sir William Family Coat of Arms
This interesting surname is one of the oldest and noblest of all English surnames, with the Stanley family who hold the earldom of Derby tracing their descent from a companion of Wilham the Conqueror, Adam de Aldithley. A branch of the family taking the name Stanley when Adam's grandson married the heiress to the manor of Stanley in Staffordshire. The name itself is of Anglo-Saxon locational origin from any of the various places so called in Derbyshire, Durham and Gloucester, and is composed of the Olde English pre 7th Century "stan", a stone, plus "leah", a wood or clearing. The founder of the family's fortune was Sir John Stanley (1350 - 1414), who married an heiress of West Derby, Lancashire, and became Lord Lieutenant of Ireland and was granted sovereignty over the Isle of Man by Henry 1V. One Thomas Baron Stanley placed the Crown of England on the head of Henry Tudor (Henry V11) at the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485, and was created Earl of Derby. Other famous namebearers include Edward Stanley, 3rd Earl of Derby (1508 - 1572), who signed a petition to Pope Clement V11 for Henry V111's divorce, 1530; and Arthur Penrhyn Stanley (1815 - 1881) who was Dean of Westminster from 1864 - 1881. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Robert de Stanleya, which was dated 1130, in the "Pipe Rolls of Staffordshire", during the reign of King Henry 1, known as "The Administrator", 1100 - 1135. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.

Tansley Family Crest
Tansley Family Crest
Recorded in many spelling forms including Tansey, Tansie, Tansye, Tansley, Tanslie and Tansly, this is an English surname. It was originally locational, and described a former inhabitant of the village of Tansley, in the county of Derbyshire. Tansley itself is a development of the Olde English pre 7th century word "tan" meaning branch, as in a branch off from a main valley or dale, and "leah," a fenced enclosure or more likely a farm in a forest. First recorded in the famous Domesday Book of 1086 as Teneslege, the village is in an area of the country, which although remote, was greatly affected by the infamous plague of the 1660's known as the Bubonic Plague, and many people fled the area never to return. Apparently the local pronunciation of Tansley is Tansey, and this pronunciation developed into a parallel source of the surname. The first recorded spelling of the family name in the diocese of Greater London to where many early inhabitants moved, was that of Agnes Tanslie, christened
