Kartmil is a name of ancient Anglo-Saxon origin and comes from a family once having lived in or near the settlement of Cartmel in the county of Lancashire. Thus, Kartmil is a habitation surname which is derived from the name of a place. Like most English local surnames, the name Kartmil was originally preceded by a preposition such as de. However, the preposition had usually been dropped from the name by the end of the 14th century.

Kartmil Early Origins



The surname Kartmil was first found in Lancashire, at Cartmel, a parish, in the union of Ulverston, hundred of Lonsdale north of the Sands. "This place, which is supposed to have derived its name from the British words Kert, a camp, and mell, a fell, or small mountain, according to Camden was given to St. Cuthbert, in 677, by Egfrid, King of Northumbria, with all the Britons inhabiting it. In 782, Ethelred, upon his restoration to the throne of that kingdom, allured from their sanctuary at York the sons of Alfwold, who had been advanced to the crown upon his expulsion, and put them to death at Cartmel. In 1188, William Mareschall, Earl of Pembroke, founded a priory for Regular canons of the order of St. Augustine, dedicated to the Blessed Virgin, and endowed it with all his lands at 'Kertmell,' " [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Now a village in Cumbria, it has more recently become known as the "home of sticky toffee pudding."

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Kartmil or a variant listed above: the Cartmell family, who settled in Sangamon County, Illinois in 1730; Thomas Cartmill, who was naturalized in New York in 1831; Neal Carmel, who was naturalized in Philadelphia in 1841.
