Origins Available: English, Scottish


Like many surnames, the name Shadle is occupational in origin, meaning that the first bearer of the name took it because it pertained to his profession. In this case, there are two possible occupations that could be associated with the name. The name comes from the middle English word "schaklock," meaning "fetters" or "chains." It therefore seems likely that the first bearer of the name was either a manufacturer of such shackles, or perhaps a jailer. Another possibility is that the name comes from "shake locks" and was a nickname for someone with long hair who had the habit of shaking back his locks.

Shadle Early Origins



The surname Shadle was first found in Gloucestershire, where Richard Schakeloc was recorded in the Pipe Rolls in 1187. Another man of the same name (it is possible, but highly unlikely that they are the same man) was recorded in the Assize Rolls of Lancaster in 1246. Robert Shakeloc was recorded in the Assize Rolls of Staffordshire in 1227. Adam Schakelokes was listed in the Court Rolls of the Manor of Wakefield in 1316. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Shadle 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 Shadle 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 Shadle include Shacklock, Shatlock, Shadlock, Shakeloc, Schakeloc and many more.

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 Shadle, or a variant listed above: the $ family, who settled along the eastern coast of North America.
