Where did the Spanish Casteel family come from? What is the Spanish Casteel family crest and coat of arms? When did the Casteel family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Casteel family history?

The long and noble heritage behind the name of Casteel first began in medieval Spain. While the patronymic and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the name of the father and mother respectively, are the most common form of a hereditary surname in Spain, occupational surnames also emerged during the late Middle Ages. Since Spain was periodically dominated by both the Germanic speaking Visigoths and the Arabic and Muslim Moors in its past, it's surnames share much in common with the surnames of both of these nations. Many people, such as the Casteel family, adopted the name of their occupation as their surname. The surname Casteel was an occupational name for a person who worked in a castle.


Spelling variations of this family name include: Castellano, Castellanos and others.

First found in Galicia, in the northwestern region of the Iberian peninsula.
