The name Gartrell is of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from when a family lived in or near the settlement of Catterall, which is located between Preston and Garstang in the county of Lancashire. Some experts also suggest that the surname Gartrell may be derived from a pet form of the name Caterin; this is a form of the personal name Catharine which became popular following its importation in the 12th century.

Gartrell Early Origins



The surname Gartrell was first found in Lancashire 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.

Gartrell Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Gartrell family name include Catterall, Caterell, Catterale, Catterell, Caterale, Cathrell, Catheral and many more.
