Britel is a name whose history is connected to the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the Britel family once lived in the settlement of Britwell in the county of Buckinghamshire, or in the settlement of Britwell Prior, in the parish of Salome in Oxfordshire. Miles Crispin was recorded as the proprietor of the latter lands, which were then called Brutuelle, in the Domesday Book of 1086.

Britel Early Origins



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

Britel Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Britel family name include Brittle, Brittell, Britwell, Brutuelle, Brittewell, Brithwell and many more.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Britel surname or a spelling variation of the name include:
