The roots of the name Kettale come from the Viking settlers of ancient Scotland. The name was derived from the old Norse personal name of Ketill or from the old Danish personal name of Ketil.

Early Origins of the Kettale family


The surname Kettale was first found in Perthshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Pheairt) former county in the present day Council Area of Perth and Kinross, located in central Scotland.

However, one of the first records of the family was found further south in England where William Ketel ( fl. 1100) was a medieval English writer and clergyman. Little is known of him other than he wrote a work containing miraculous stories about Saint John of Beverley. He is presumed to have been clerk of Beverley Minster at that time.

Migration of the Kettale family to the New World and Oceana


The Scottish settlers spread out along the fertile land of the east coast of what would become the United States and Canada. They and many of their children went on to play important roles in the forging of the great nations of the United States and Canada. That heritage has been recovered by many in this century through Clan societies and other Scottish historical organizations. Archival documents indicate that members of the Kettale family relocated to North American shores quite early: Peter Kettell settled in Boston in 1635; Edith Kettle settled in Nevis in 1653 along with William; Ralph Kettle settled in Virginia in 1698; Margarita, Sarah and Wennell Kettle arrived in Philadelphia in 1733..

The Kettale 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: Bono vince malum
Motto Translation: Overcome evil with good.
