The Hascall name came to Britain with the Normans. It derives from any of a number of Scandinavian personal names, including the Old Norse name Askell, the Old Danish name Eskil, and the Old Swedish name Ęskil, a contracted form of Asketill. Some of the forms found in Normandy, France included Anschetill, Anketill, Asketin and Anquetin.

Hascall Early Origins



The surname Hascall was first found in Monmouthshire (Welsh: Sir Fynwy), where the family 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.

Hascall Spelling Variations



Welsh surnames are relatively few in number, but they have an inordinately large number of spelling variations. There are many factors that explain the preponderance of Welsh variants, but the earliest is found during the Middle Ages when Welsh surnames came into use. Scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, which often resulted in a single person's name being inconsistently recorded over his lifetime. The transliteration of Welsh names into English also accounts for many of the spelling variations: the unique Brythonic Celtic language of the Welsh had many sounds the English language was incapable of accurately reproducing. It was also common for members of a same surname to change their names slightly, in order to signify a branch loyalty within the family, a religious adherence, or even patriotic affiliations. For all of these reasons, the many spelling variations of particular Welsh names are very important. The surname Hascall has occasionally been spelled Haskell, Haskel, Askell, Askel, Askill, Askil, Hascall, Hascal, Haskill and many more.
