An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The Norman Conquest of England of 1066 added many new elements to the already vibrant culture. Among these were thousands of new names. The Artill name is derived from 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.

Artill Early Origins



The surname Artill 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.

Artill Spelling Variations



A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Arkell, Arkle, Arkill, Arcle, Argal, Argall, Arnkell, Artell, Artill, Arctall, Arktale, Arktell, Arktull, Arkgale and many more.

The Great Migration



Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Artill or a variant listed above: Sir Samuel Argal who settled in Virginia in 1624.
