STATE Family History

This interesting and unusual name is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and is a topographical surname for someone who lived by a landing-place, on the banks of a river or estuary, on the shore. The name derives from the Old English pre 7th Century word 'staeth', in Middle English 'staith(e)', landing-place. Topographical surnames were among the earliest created, since either natural or man-made features in the landscape provided easily recognisable distinguishing names for people in small medieval communities.
