Aspenwall History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The history of the Aspenwall family goes back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It is derived from the family living in the settlement of Aspinwall, which was in the parish of Aughton in Lancashire county. The name Aspinwall literally means the aspen-well, referring to a well near a grove of aspen trees.

Early Origins of the Aspenwall family

The surname Aspenwall 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.

Aspenwall Spelling Variations

Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Aspenwall include Aspinal, Aspinall, Aspinwall, Aspinwal, Aspinshaw, Aschmell, Ashmell, Asmall, Espinall, Espinwall, Espinshaw and many more.

Migration of the Aspenwall family to the New World and Oceana

Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Aspenwall 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.
