Cashwel is an Anglo-Saxon name. The name was originally given to a maker of boxes or chests. The surname Cashwel is derived from the Old French word casse, which means case. Thus, Cashwel is a metonymic type of occupational surname; it is derived from the principal object associated with the occupation, which in this case was the product produced.

Cashwel Early Origins



The surname Cashwel was first found in Cambridgeshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Cashwel arrived in North America very early: William Cash who settled in Salem, Massachusetts in 1667; married and had William and John and five daughters; John Cass settled in Virginia in 1639; Mary settled in Maryland in 1718.
