Satchell Coat of Arms / Satchell Family Crest

This surname SATCHELL was of two-fold origin, it was a baptismal group of surnames 'the son of Sachel' and it was also given to one who made small sacks or bags used by traders and merchants. Occupational surnames originally denoted the actual occupation followed by the individual. At what period they became hereditary is a difficult problem. Many of the occupation names were descriptive and could be varied. In the Middle Ages, at least among the Christian population, people did not usually pursue specialized occupations exclusively to the extent that we do today, and they would, in fact, turn their hand to any form of work that needed to be done, particularly in a large house or mansion, or on farms and smallholdings. In early documents, surnames often refer to the actual holder of an office, whether the church or state. The name was of French origin derived from the word 'sachel' and was brought into England in the wake of the Norman Invasion of 1066. Nicholas Sachel, documented in County Somerset in the year 1243, appears to be the first of the name on record. Thomas Sachel was recorded during the reign of Edward III (1327-1377). Edward Sachel of Yorkshire, was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379, and Thomas Sachel was documented in County Lancashire in the year 1400. Pritty William, son of William Satchell was baptised at St. James's, Clerkenwell, London in the year 1715. Originally the coat of arms identified the wearer, either in battle or in tournaments. Completely covered in body and facial armour the knight could be spotted and known by the insignia painted on his shield, and embroidered on his surcoat, the draped garment which enveloped him. Between the 11th and 15th centuries it became customary for surnames to be assumed in Europe, but were not commonplace in England or Scotland before the Norman Conquest of 1066. They are to be found in the Domesday Book of 1086. Those of gentler blood assumed surnames at this time, but it was not until the reign of Edward II (1307-1327) that second names became general practice for all people. The name is also spelt Satchel and Sach.
