The Martingil name has descended through the generations from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name comes from having lived in the settlement of Martindale in the county of Westmorland (now part of Cumbria). The surname Martingil belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Martingil Early Origins



The surname Martingil 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]

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



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Martingil were among those contributors: 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.
