Early Origins of the Pressel family


The surname Pressel was first found in Lancashire at Preesall, with Hackensall, a township, in the chapelry of Stalmine, parish of Lancaster, union of Garstang, hundred of Amounderness. " 'Pressonede' in the Domesday Survey was estimated at six carucates of land: the tithes were granted by Roger de Poictou to the priory of Lancaster." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
Hence, conjecturally, the surname is descended from the tenant of the lands of Preesall, held by a steward of the King who was recorded in the Domesday Book census of 1086. Literally, the place name means "brushwood headland" from the Old Welsh word "pres" + the Old Viking word "hofuth" or the Old English word "heafod." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
