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


The name Axall first arose amongst the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is derived from their having lived in the settlement of Hackinsall in Lancashire, in Hauxwell in the North Riding of Yorkshire, or in a now-lost place called Hawkeswell in Sevington in Kent. The surname Axall belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

The Great Migration



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Axall arrived in North America very early:
