An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


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.

Burtle Early Origins



The surname Burtle was first found in Cheshire at Birtles, a township, in the parish of Prestbury, union and hundred of Macclesfield. "Birtles Hall and demesne belonged for many generations to the Birtles family." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
