STURGEON Family History

This interesting surname is an English metonymic occupational name for a fishmonger, or possibly a nickname, from the medieval English "sturgeon" (an aphetic form of the Old French "estourgeon", of Germanic origin), a sturgeon being the name of a fish from the family "Acipenseridae", of temperate waters of the Northern Hemisphere having an elongated snout and rows of spines along the body, valued as a source of caviar and isinglass. Richard Sturious (storioun) was recorded in 1327, in the Subsidy Rolls of Essex and a William Sturgeon was listed in 1380, in the "Calendar of letter Books - of the city of London.
