The founding heritage of the Chastell family is in the Anglo-Saxon culture that once dominated in Britain. The name Chastell comes from when one of the family worked as a person who worked in a castle. The original bearer of the surname Chastell may have held the post of governor or constable of the castle. However, the surname might also be derived from residence near a castle, or from services or rent owed to a castle. The surname Chastell is derived from the Old Norman French word castel, which means castle.

Chastell Early Origins

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Chastells to arrive in North America: George Castell, who settled in Virginia in 1635; followed by Henry in 1639; George Castell settled in Maryland in 1775; Dorothy Castle settled in Virginia in 1639.
