This name is of English locational origin from a place in Lincolnshire called Tattershall. Recorded as Tateshale in the Domesday Book of 1086 and as Tatesala circa 1115 in a survey of that county, the name derives from the Olde English pre 7th Century personal name Tathere, containing the element 'here' or 'hale', a nook, recess or remote valley. The surname from this source is first recorded towards the end of the 12th Century, (see below). In the London 'Calendarium Genealogicum', dated 1298 the name appears as de Tateshale, Tatteshall or Tatersale. Edwarde Tattersall, an infant was christened in St Michael's Church, Cornwall, London in 1585.

The crest being a buck's head proper. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Hugo de Tateshal, which was dated 1191 in the Pipe Rolls of Lincolnshire, during the reign of King Richard 1, known as Richard 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.
