The name Catchlove finds its origins with the ancient Anglo-Saxons of England. It was given to one who worked as a medieval policeman, called a cacherel. The name comes from the weapon carried by the cacherel, called a catchpole, used to hold people around the head so as to subdue them. The cacherel was often colloquially referred to the weapon he carried.

Catchlove Early Origins



The surname Catchlove was first found in Dorset 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.

Catchlove Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Catchlove has been recorded under many different variations, including Catchpole, Catchpolle, Cageypole, Cachpole, Cachpool and many more.
