The name Martindale belongs to the early history of Britain, it's origins lie with the Anglo-Saxons. It is a product of their having lived in the settlement of Martindale in the county of Westmorland (now part of Cumbria). The surname Martindale belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Martindale Early Origins



The surname Martindale was first found in Westmorland, (now Cumbria.) "Martindale is the name of an old Cumberland family dating back to the 14th century, and holding much property in that shire up to the 17th century and later. An ecclesiastical district in Westmorland is thus called." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Guppy, Henry Brougham, Homes of Family Names in Great Britain. 1890. Print.
The valley of Martindale lies close to Hawes Water in the Lake District of England. The valley is accessed across Deepdale Beck from Patterdale which is eight miles from Ambleside. The chapelry of Martindale has remained small over the centuries having only 198 people by the late 1800s. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Martindale were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records:
