The Mundal 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.

Mundal Early Origins



The surname Mundal 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.

Mundal Spelling Variations



Endless spelling variations are a prevailing characteristic of Norman surnames. Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules, and the introduction of Norman French added an unfamiliar ingredient to the English linguistic stew. French and Latin, the languages of the court, also influenced spellings. Finally, Medieval scribes generally spelled words according to how they sounded, so one person was often referred to by different spellings in different documents. The name has been spelled Mundell, Mondale, Mondell and others.

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious persecution within England at the time, many English families left for the various British colonies abroad. The voyage was extremely difficult, though, and the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving. But for those who made it, the trip was most often worth it. Many of the families who arrived went on to make valuable contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families reveals a number of immigrants bearing the name Mundal 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..
