Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Aspinwile is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived 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.

Aspinwile Early Origins



The surname Aspinwile 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 first dictionaries that appeared in the last few hundred years did much to standardize the English language. Before that time, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence.

Aspinwile has been spelled many different ways, including Aspinal, Aspinall, Aspinwall, Aspinwal, Aspinshaw, Aschmell, Ashmell, Asmall, Espinall, Espinwall, Espinshaw and many more.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Aspinwiles to arrive in North America: 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.
