The surname Aschmell was first found in Lancashire where they held a family seat for many centuries, and where, at an early time, probably well before the Norman Conquest of England in 1066, they founded the town of Aspinall in that county.

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Aschmell or a variant listed above: Edward Aspinwall, who arrived in Salem, MA in 1630; William Aspinwall, his wife Elisabeth and their daughter Mary Aspinwall, who came to Charlestown, MA in 1630.
