The present generation of the Burtchael family is only the most recent to bear a name that dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name comes from having lived in Berkshire from a place of that name.

Burtchael Early Origins

Burtchael Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules.

The recorded variations of Burtchael include Burchall, Burchell, Burchill, Burchhell, Burtchell, Burtchill, Burtchaell and many more.
