An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright © 2000 - 2016
The surname Shovlin was first found in Hertfordshire
, where the first record of the name was Aluricus Scoua who was listed in the Domesday Book
. Leuuinus Scufe was listed c. 1067 in the reference "Old English Bynames" and Wulnod Scoue was listed as a Templar Knight in 1185. The name is probably derived from the Old English word "scufa," which means to "thrust, push." The name is often metonymic
for Shoveller and it's variants. In this latter case, the name is a trade name for someone who makes "shovels." As the names are so similar phonetically, it is now difficult to clearly determine which origin is which.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Shovel, Showl, Shovell, Shoveller, Shouler, Showler and many more.
