The roots of the Anglo-Saxon name Martindul come from when the family resided in the settlement of Martindale in the county of Westmorland (now part of Cumbria). The surname Martindul belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Martindul Early Origins



The surname Martindul 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]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
Many of the family were found in Yorkshire in the 15th century. The Corpus Christi Guild (Surtees Society) listed Katerina Martyngdale in 1475 and John Markyngdale in 1476. [3]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration

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 Martindul or a variant listed above: Edward and Margaret (sometimes spelled Martindell) Martindale who arrived in Pennsylvania in 1682; John Martindale arrived in New York State in 1758; Thomas Martindale arrived in New York in 1820.
