About The Summerscales Clan
Please sign in to see more.
Welcome to our family website, which is a private site for direct family 
members only. Although it is named  'The Summerscales Clan ' there are many 
more surnames involved, and of which are equally as fascinating with 
historical content. Thanks to Sheila Johnston, John David Summerscales, Tony 
Godwin, Allan and Joan Countee, Alan Hodkinson, Paul Leese, Pat and John 
Summerscales, John B Summerscales, Beryl Price and Roy Price MBA, Jim 
Summerscales ( and aunt Beth ), Mervyn and Graham Chaddock, Richard Mark 
Summerscales, Chanene Pitt and Julie Fouracre for all their contributions towards the 
creation of this site without which it would not have been possible. 

We have an A to Z of surnames all interlinked and I'm sure that they will be 
added to in due course by everyone involved. Historical informative quotes are 
always welcome such as this...
John Summerscales (02/07/2003)
Summerscales originated in West Yorkshire and is a combination of two old 
norse words, 'sumar' meaning Summer and 'Skai' meaning shelter. Together this 
may describe a person who lived in a hut or a crude shelter during summer 
months, maybe a herdsman on upland pastures.

In 1513, the Summerscales fought with the English Army at The Battle of 
Flodden Field, Northumberlandshire. They were rewarded by the King for their 
loyalty and were given land on Silsden Moor, Yorkshire where they became 
yeoman farmers. Their name was Summerscale without the 's', this for some 
reason appeared sometime later. An uncle and nephew both named Richard came to 
Hollinwood, Oldham, around 1800 and formed the Lancashire branches of the 
family. They became farmer butchers. 

Please contact Sheila for any information on the Hultons at
Also for any information on the early Somerscales there is Roy Price's site

A big thankyou to all of those who have contributed photographs. I'm sure 
you'll agree that they help bring things to life.
