Variations on the Surname Tolladay

have found a source of STOLLADAY Pedigrees in England. Yes, it means we are adding more Surnames to our research list. This resource should provide valuable information for all researchers. It led me to some vital information on the origins and changes in our name. Apparently, our name is from the Old English Staelwurde meaning robust, sturdy and stalwart or STALLWORTHY. Before 1765 the name is found spelled STOLLADAY. The former is now spelled STOLWORTHY, STOLLERY, STALLARD, STALWOOD and is the first element of STOLERMAN. With the loss of the initial consonant, these spellings have become

TALLERMAN, TOLWORTHY, TOWLEWARDIE found as early as 1574,
TOWLARDY found as early as 1664
TOWLWORTHY found in 1672
TILLADAY found in 1674.
Between 1674 - 1765 the name changed to TOLLADAY with occasional spellings as
TOLLADY, TOLLEDAY and TOLLIDAY.

Further research revels a source of the family heraldry. Thomas Towlewardie was submitted as Thomas Towlewardie the Woodsman, of the OED in 1688. The Device. Quarterly purpure and sable, a tree blasted the trunk surmounted by an arrow fesswise reversed Or. This does not conflict with Huette Aliza von und zu Ahrens und Mechthildberg (SCA) Vert, a tree blasted throughout Or. There are CDs for the change to the field and the addition of the overall charge.
