Early Origins of the Mauckel family
The surname Mauckel was first found in Westmorland
where they held a family seat
as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 11th century when they held estates in that shire. One of the first records of the name was Halthe le Machel who was listed there during the reign of Henry I. Humfrey le Machel was also listed in the rolls of Henry II. These latter rolls also lists William Malus Catulus in 1179 and William Manchel in 1206. CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Mauckel family to the New World and Oceana
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 Mauckel were among those contributors: the name represented in many forms and recorded from the mid 17th century in the great migration from Europe. Migrants settled in the eastern seaboard from Newfoundland, to Maine, to Virginia, the Carolinas, and to the islands..
