The origins of the Ketelwelle name lie with England's ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It comes from when the family lived in the town of Kettlewell in the North Yorkshire. Ketelwelle is a topographic surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. Habitation names form the other broad category of surnames that were derived from place-names. They were derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. Other local names are derived from the names of houses, manors, estates, regions, and entire counties.

Ketelwelle Early Origins



The surname Ketelwelle was first found in Yorkshire, at Kettlewell, a village in Upper Wharfedale, North Yorkshire, which dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 where it was listed as Cheteleuuelle [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

and literally meant "spring or stream in a deep valley," having derived from the Old English words "cete" + "wella." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

In 1686, Kettlewell and the neighbouring village Starbotton were almost destroyed in a flood.

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Ketelwelle family emigrate to North America: William Kettlewell, who sailed to Philadelphia in 1856. In Canada Richard Kettlewell was registered in Elgin County, Ontario in 1872 and George Kettlewell was living in Middlesex County, Ontario in 1877..
