The history of the Buckel family goes back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It is derived from the family living in the region of Buckley which was a parish in St. Albans in County Hertfordshire.

Buckel Early Origins



The surname Buckel was first found in Suffolk and Sussex where they held a family seat, some say, well before the Norman Conquest in 1066 A.D.

Buckel Spelling Variations



Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Buckel include Buckell, Buckle, Bouckle, Buckles, Buckhill and others.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Buckel or a variant listed above:

Buckel Settlers in United States in the 17th Century

  • Herman Van Buckel, who landed in Maryland in 1666-1750
  • Thomas Buckel, who arrived in New Jersey in 1675

  • Jacob Buckel, who arrived in Pennsylvania in 1751
  • Leonhart Buckel, who landed in Pennsylvania in 1751

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Nil temere
Motto Translation: Nothing rashly.
