The name Argall reached English shores for the first time with the ancestors of the Argall family as they migrated following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The name Argall is based on the Dutch surname Van Arkel. The name Van Arkel may spring from the Anglo-Saxon form of Hercules, which is Ercol. A less likely root of the name is the parish of Ercoll Magna, or High Ercoll in Shropshire.

Argall Early Origins



The surname Argall was first found in Berwickshire, in south east Scotland, arriving in Scotland soon after the Norman Conquest in 1066. They are the northern branch of the family name descended from Anketell, or Arnketill.

Argall Spelling Variations



It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, Anglo-Norman surnames like Argall are characterized by many spelling variations. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages such as Norman French and Latin, even literate people regularly changed the spelling of their names. The variations of the name Argall include Arkell, Arkle, Arkill, Arcle, Argal, Argall, Arnkell, Artell, Artill, Arctall, Arktale, Arktell, Arktull, Arkgale and many more.
