Candles History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Candles is a name of ancient Norman origin. It arrived in England with the Norman Conquest of 1066. Candles is a name that comes from the Norman name Cundel, and arrived with the Norman Conquest of England in 1066.

Early Origins of the Candles family


The surname Candles 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.

Candles Spelling Variations


Anglo-Norman names are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. When the Normans became the ruling people of England in the 11th century, they introduced a new language into a society where the main languages of Old and later Middle English had no definite spelling rules. These languages were more often spoken than written, so they blended freely with one another. Contributing to this mixing of tongues was the fact that medieval scribes spelled words according to sound, ensuring that a person's name would appear differently in nearly every document in which it was recorded. The name has been spelled Cundall, Cundal, Cundell, Cundel, Cundil, Cundill, Condall, Condal, Condel and many more.

Migration of the Candles family to the New World and Oceana


For many English families, the political and religious disarray that plagued their homeland made the frontiers of the New World an attractive prospect. Thousands migrated, aboard cramped disease-ridden ships. They arrived sick, poor, and hungry, but were welcomed in many cases with far greater opportunity than at home in England. Many of these hardy settlers went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Among early immigrants bearing the name Candles or a variant listed above were: 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.
