Origins Available: English, German


The ancestors of the name Stokel date back to the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the Stokel family lived in either of the settlements called Stockwell in Surrey or Somerset, or near any footbridge over a stream. The surname Stokel is derived from the Old English words stocc and wiella, and it belongs to both the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads, and the class of topographic surnames, which were given to people who resided near physical features such as hills, streams, churches, or types of trees.

Stokel Early Origins



The surname Stokel was first found in Surrey where they held a family seat as Lords of the manor of Lambeth, a suburb of London, from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Stokel or a variant listed above:
