Castelo History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: English, Irish


Early Origins of the Castelo family


The surname Castelo was first found in Westmorland where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1306 when Sir George de Castello (Georgius du Chastel) was knighted by King Edward 1st, on the occasion of the knighting of his son, Prince Edward.

Castelo Spelling Variations


It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, early Anglo-Saxon surnames like Castelo are characterized by many spelling variations. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages, even literate people changed the spelling of their names. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. The variations of the name Castelo include: Castlehow, Castlehowe, Castello, Castelly, Castley, Castlo, Cassler, Castlehough and many more.
