An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright © 2000 - 2016


The Marcal surname is derived from the Old High German word "marah," or "horse" and "sclac," or "servant." Thus the name was originally occupational for someone who looked after horses, often one of the most important servants in the noble houses.

Marcal Early Origins



The surname Marcal was first found in Prussia, where the name emerged in medieval times as one of the notable families of the region. From the 13th century the surname was identified with the great social and economic evolution which made this territory a landmark contributor to the development of the nation.
