The name Barnsdall first arose amongst the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is derived from their having lived at or near the granary or barn in the valley. The first part of the surname Barnsdall is derived from the Old English word barn, which refers to a barn or granary house. The word barn itself was originally derived from the Old English words bern, which mean barley, and oern, which means house. The last portion of the name is derived from the Old English word doel, which means valley or dale.

Barnsdall Early Origins



The surname Barnsdall was first found in Yorkshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times, long before the Norman Conquest in 1066.

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 Barnsdall arrived in North America very early: Christopher Barnsdale who settled in Virginia in 1642.
