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. Espinal has been recorded under many different variations, including Aspinal, Aspinall, Aspinwall, Aspinwal, Aspinshaw, Aschmell, Ashmell, Asmall, Espinall, Espinwall, Espinshaw and many more.

First found in Lancashire where they held a family seat for many centuries, and where, at an early time, probably well before the Norman Conquest of England in 1066, they founded the town of Aspinall in that county.
