The name Burtle first arose amongst the Anglo-Saxon
tribes of Britain. It is derived from their having lived in either the settlement of Birtle
in the county of Lancashire
or the settlement of Birtles
in the county of Cheshire
. The names of these places are derived from the Old English word bridd,
meaning young bird or nestling, and indicates that the places were originally known as nesting grounds for birds.
