Candel is an ancient Norman name that arrived in England after the Norman Conquest of 1066. The name Candel comes from the Norman name Cundel, and arrived with the Norman Conquest of England in 1066.

Candel Early Origins



The surname Candel was first found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat in the North Riding as Lords of the Manor of Cundall, originally pre Conquest, Cundel, at the time of the Norman Conquest of England by Duke William of Normandy in 1066. In the Domesday Book survey taken in 1086 the village of Cundall was held by Alured from the Count of Mortain. Conjecturally the Cundalls are descended from this Norman noble.

Candel Spelling Variations



A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Cundall, Cundal, Cundell, Cundel, Cundil, Cundill, Condall, Condal, Condel and many more.

The Great Migration



Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Candel or a variant listed above: John and Elizabeth Cundall who settled in Georgia in 1734 with their three sons, John, Thomas, and William; Edward and Robert Cundell arrived in Maryland in 1737 and the next year moved to Virginia.
