The Mondal surname is one of the names that came to Britain with the Norman Conquest of England in 1066. The name was de Magneville or de Maneville and derives from a place in Normandy.

Mondal Early Origins



The surname Mondal was first found in Wigtownshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Bhaile na h-Uige), formerly a county in southwestern Scotland, now part of the Council Area of Dumfries and Galloway where they were granted lands by King David of Scotland. They were perhaps related to Geoffrey de Mandeville (d. c. 1100), an important Domesday tenant-in-chief, who was granted large estates in Essex, and in ten other shires by William, and was Constable of the Tower of London. His descendent Geoffrey de Mandeville (d. 1144,) was created the 1st Earl of Essex.

Mondal Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Mondal has been recorded under many different variations, including Mundell, Mondale, Mondell and others.

The Great Migration



To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Mondals were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America: Jonathon Mondell, who settled in Virginia in 1716; William Mondindale settled in Maryland in 1774; David, Elizabeth, Isabella, Jane, John, Margaret, Mary, Samuel, William Mundell all arrived in Baltimore in 1803..
