HALSTED Family History

This interesting name of Medieval English origin is locational from places so called in Essex, Kent and Leicester, and is derived from the Old English elements '(ge)heald', a shelter or stable for animals, and 'stede', a place or building, thus a place of shelter for cattle. Halstead in Essex is first recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as 'Haltesteda' in the Feet of Fines of 1202 as 'Haudested' and in 1218 as 'Haldstede'. The place in Kent appears as 'Halsted' in the Feet of Fines of 1201 and Halstead in Leicester as 'Elstede' (Domesday Book of 1086).
