An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Axcell is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family 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 Axcell belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Axcell Early Origins



The surname Axcell was first found in Suffolk, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

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 Axcells to arrive in North America:
