Hunkitile is a name that first reached England following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Hunkitile family lived in Anctiville, Normandy, in the diocese of Coutances. The Hunkitile family migrated to England in the 11th century, settling in the county of Dorset.

Hunkitile Early Origins



The surname Hunkitile was first found in the county of Dorset, in England, but for earlier origins the family can be traced to Tebotvilla in Normandy, where their territories were known as Weedon Beck. They accompanied Duke William of Normandy into England in 1066 and were granted lands in Dorset.

Hunkitile Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Hunkitile has been recorded under many different variations, including Anketill, Ankatell, Anketil, Ankatel, Anchetill, Anchetell and many more.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Hunkitiles were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America: Henry Anketell who settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1844; Edward Anketall settled in the same city in 1851. The spelling Antle is found to have arrived in Newfoundland, in the early 1700's and have settled now in the areas of Victoria, St. John's, Fox Cove and Botwood..

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Vade ad formicam
Motto Translation: Go to the ant.
