About Salt Family Connections
Please sign in to see more.
My given name is Margaret (Maggie) Salt and my Salt family were found in Halesowen and Clent  in Worcestershire in the early 1700's.  The family were probably in this area long  before this time but as I haven't yet been able to confirm this for certain, I  can only assume.

My Great Grandparents John Salt (born 1873) and his wife Rebecca Humphries (born 1875 in Tividale)  travelled to Wales in the early 1900's looking for work.  They took with them their five very  young children - probably very easy for us nowadays, but quite a trek in 1906.  The family stayed  in Wales but in 1936, my Grandparents and their four children returned to Tividale, Rowley Regis,  Staffordshire, now in the West Midlands

The SALT name is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and is an English locational surname from the  town of Salt in Staffordshire, recorded as "Selte" in the Domesday Book of 1086, and  as "Salt" in the 1167 Pipe Rolls of that county. The name derives from the Olde  English pre 7th Century "selte" meaning a salt-pit. At the beginning of the century  there were salt works within two miles of the town.

Locational surnames were usually acquired by a local landowner, or by the lord of the  manor, and especially by those former inhabitants of a place who had moved to another  area, and were thereafter best identified by the name of their birthplace. The  surname from this source is first recorded at the end of the 12th Century. One  William de Saut appears in the 1203 Staffordshire Pleas Rolls and an Alyce Salte in  the Burial Records of St. James' Church, Clerkenwell, London, dated 1599.

William Salt (1805 - 1863) was a Staffordshire antiquary who made archaelogical  collections from the county. He was also a member of the Royal Society of Literature.

The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Nicholas de  (of) Salt, which was dated 1199, witness in the "Assize Court Rolls of  Staffordshire", during the reign of King Richard 1, known as "The Lionheart", 1189 -  1199. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In  England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every  country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the  original spelling. © Copyright: Name Orgin Research www.surnamedb.com 1980 - 2009

Wherever possible, I have verified the information contained in this work, through  Parish Records, GRO Records and Census Returns.  If you would like to add to the  families recorded here, please contact me.

The Barklam name for some of my ancestors has changed sometimes within the same  family unit to Bartlam or Bartlem - I have for ease of searching these pages, just  used the name spelling Barklam.

I hope you enjoy reading about my family - I have by no means finished and will  be adding more people as I discover them.  Please sign my Guest Book.
