The Mondil 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.

Early Origins of the Mondil family


The surname Mondil 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.

Migration of the Mondil family to the New World and Oceana


In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Mondils to arrive on North American shores: 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..
