The Cartmaale name has descended through the generations from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name comes from having lived in or near the settlement of Cartmel in the county of Lancashire. Thus, Cartmaale is a habitation surname which is derived from the name of a place. Like most English local surnames, the name Cartmaale was originally preceded by a preposition such as de. However, the preposition had usually been dropped from the name by the end of the 14th century.

Cartmaale Early Origins



The surname Cartmaale was first found in Lancashire, at Cartmel, a parish, in the union of Ulverston, hundred of Lonsdale north of the Sands. "This place, which is supposed to have derived its name from the British words Kert, a camp, and mell, a fell, or small mountain, according to Camden was given to St. Cuthbert, in 677, by Egfrid, King of Northumbria, with all the Britons inhabiting it. In 782, Ethelred, upon his restoration to the throne of that kingdom, allured from their sanctuary at York the sons of Alfwold, who had been advanced to the crown upon his expulsion, and put them to death at Cartmel. In 1188, William Mareschall, Earl of Pembroke, founded a priory for Regular canons of the order of St. Augustine, dedicated to the Blessed Virgin, and endowed it with all his lands at 'Kertmell,' " [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Now a village in Cumbria, it has more recently become known as the "home of sticky toffee pudding."

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Cartmaale were among those contributors: the Cartmell family, who settled in Sangamon County, Illinois in 1730; Thomas Cartmill, who was naturalized in New York in 1831; Neal Carmel, who was naturalized in Philadelphia in 1841.
