Nudale History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
The name Nudale is of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from when a family lived in the settlement of Nuthall in Nottinghamshire, or in the place named Nuttall in the county of Lancashire. The surname Nudale belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.
Early Origins of the Nudale family
The surname Nudale was first found in Nottinghamshire at Nuthall, parish, in the union of Basford, S. division of the wapentake of Broxtow. Nuthall Temple, occupying a commanding site near the village, is a handsome mansion, built in imitation of the Villa Capra, at Vicenza, in Italy, and surrounded by an extensive park embellished with plantations and an artificial lake.  The place dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 when it was first listed as Nutehale.  Literally the place name means "nook of land where nut trees grow" from the Old English words "hnutu" + "halh."

Nudale Spelling Variations
Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Nudale family name include Nuttall, Nutthall, Nutshall and others.
