The ancient Anglo-Saxon surname Asketine came from the given name Asketillus, which is composed of the elements óss or áss which means god and ketill, which means kettle or sacrificial cauldron in the Old Norse. This name predates the Norman Conquest in 1066, and would have been given to one who oversaw the sacrificial rites of pre-Christian England. The surname, then, signifies "the son or descendant of Asketill".

Migration of the Asketine family to the New World and Oceana


For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Asketine or a variant listed above: Tho Axstell, age 35; who settled in Virginia in 1635; Nathaniel Axtell, who arrived in New Haven, Connecticut, in 1639; Henry Axtell, who arrived in Massachusetts in 1660.
