The ancient roots of the Catmull family name are in the Anglo-Saxon culture. The name Catmull comes from when the family lived in Catermole in Norfolk, a place lost to modern maps. The name is first recorded in Suffolk, just to the south of Norfolk, and probably appeared there first because local surnames were often acquired by families after leaving the place they are named after. A surname like "de Catermole" would not serve to distinguish you from your neighbors in Catermole, but it may be appropriate if you had just arrived in a new town after leaving Catermole.

Catmull Early Origins



The surname Catmull was first found in Suffolk, where they held a family seat from the Middle Ages.

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 Catmull arrived in North America very early: Charles Cattermole, who settled in Mississippi in 1840; James Cattermole, who settled in Ontario in 1871; John Charles Anton Cattermole, who settled in San Francisco in 1877.
