The Name

Etymology

Etymology is the study of the history of words. What does the word Satterly mean? Where does the word come from? Has it's meaning changed over time? All of those are etymological questions.

Surnames of the United Kingdom lists several other spellings as all being the same name. Anyone with the name will know how hard it is to get anyone to spell it correctly. For me a common problem is everyone wants to move the L as in Slattery which according to the book is a Celtic word meaning straight, tall, strong, or robust. A fine name, but it isn't the right one. So what does it say about Satterly?

Satterlee
Satterleigh
Satterley
Satterly
Saturley

(Eng.) Bel. to Satterleigh (Devon) = Saeter's Lea (O.E. leah, a lea: the pers. name Saeter is 1 that seen in 'Saturday,' A-Sax. Saeter-daeg (Lat. Saturni dies); 2 the O.E. soeter, a waylayer, spy) [Surnames_UK]

It sounds like a good answer, but it isn't the whole story. Names change over time and Satterlee-ley-ly & Allied Families Genealogy says there are dozens of variations of the name. It also details how Satterly comes from Devon, but when it goes further back it was de Soterley coming from Suffolk. According to Moffatt the first person with the name was Philip Bocland, Lord of Shaddingfield who took the name from Soterley Manor in 1216. [Satterly_Moffatt]

How far back does the name go then? Again according to Moffatt It appears in the Domesday book in 1086 as Soterlega. You are probably confused by this point because I know I was. As I continue reading I will write more on the topic. For now take a look at everything named Satterly.

People Named Satterly

Genealogy

I assume most people who find this site will be looking for genealogy information. I have been generally more concerned with the name instead of lineage. Without DNA testing genealogy research to prove a lineage seems mostly useless once you think about cuckholding, incest, and adoption making a mess of the lines. Beyond the DNA issues finding the route you came by a name is certainly worth looking into.

Graves

Find a Grave: Satterly has records, grave photos, cemetery photos, personal photos, and a few other things about the dead. The link shows every record with the word Satterly somewhere in the name.

The lab was named after geologist Jack Satterly who also discovered the mineral Satterlyite. I assume by the pictures they don't have an entire building to themselves. The lab is probably housed inside the Department of Geology at the University of Toronto.

Old books especially genealogy ones always have excessively long titles. Nearly all the books on this list are for genealogy.

Satterlee-ley-ly & Allied Families Genealogy

Goldie Satterlee Moffatt wrote 4 volumes and 2 supplements on Satterly genealogy. The first 3 volumes were available online at Family Search, but it looks as if they removed them. The 4th volume is not available to borrow anywhere and few copies were printed.

In that horrible typewriter font Moffatt's books have a little line saying all rights reserved. Was that really necessary for a minor genealogy book of interest to so few people? It was obviously a labor of love and personal interest now locked up behind copyright for eternity. If Moffatt hadn't added that line the books they would have been public domain today and you could read them instead of having to use the interlibrary loan system or visit a distant mormon library. When writing these kinds of books the biggest problem isn't theft it's no one cares what you have to say.

Unlike movies there are many books with characters named Satterly. Hopefully I don't make an exhaustive list when I start this section.

Satterlyite Mineral

Jack Satterly discovered this mineral in the Big Fish River area in Yukon Territory, Canada while working as a geologist at Ontario Department of Mines. Not only was the mineral named after him, but so was the Jack Satterly Geochronology Laboratory.

The mineral doesn't look interesting and I didn't see any uses for it. One website said it is a rare mineral. Sellers said the site the mineral came from closed down.
