Saville Family CrestThe English surname Saville is of Norman French origin. The name is an habitational name from a place in northern France, of which the identity is not clear. It is probably Sainville in Eure-et-Loire, so called from the Old French terms  saisne meaning “Saxon” and  ville meaning “settlement.” The Saviells have held lands in Yorkshire since the time of King Henry 111 (1216 - 1272), and Lord Saville was a strong supporter of the Parliamentary side in the English Civil War (1642-1651). The name development includes Stephende Savile (1277, Yorkshire), Rosemunda Savell (1549, ibid.), Ann Sivill (1671, London), and John Sivell (1723). The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of John de Sayvill, which was dated 1246, in the Yorkshire Fines Court Records.
