The Mondile 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.

Mondile Early Origins



The surname Mondile 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.

Mondile Spelling Variations



It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, Anglo-Norman surnames like Mondile are characterized by many spelling variations. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages such as Norman French and Latin, even literate people regularly changed the spelling of their names. The variations of the name Mondile include Mundell, Mondale, Mondell and others.

The Great Migration



Faced with the chaos present in England at that time, many English families looked towards the open frontiers of the New World with its opportunities to escape oppression and starvation. People migrated to North America, as well as Australia and Ireland in droves, paying exorbitant rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, but those who did see the shores of North America were welcomed with great opportunity. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America carried the name Mondile, or a variant listed above: 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..
