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

The Pottel name is an important part of the history of the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. Pottel is derived from the personal name Phillip. A common medieval English form of the name Phillip is Philpot. Sometimes this got shortened to Pot, and a diminutive suffix could be added: in this case, el. So, someone named Phillip could become known as Potel. They would then pass this name down to their children. Therefore, the surname Pottel means "son of Phillip."

Before the last few hundred years, the English language had no fast system of spelling rules. For that reason, spelling variations are commonly found in early Anglo-Saxon surnames. Over the years, many variations of the name Pottel were recorded, including Pottle, Pottel, Pottell, Pottale, Potale, Potell, Potelle, Potel and many more.

First found in Somerset, where the family held a family seat since ancient times.

To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Pottel family emigrate to North America: Christopher Pottle, who settled in Massachusetts in 1679; James Pottle, who sailed to America in 1756; Joseph Pottle, who arrived in Boston in 1762; and O. Pottle, who settled in San Francisco in 1851..
