The name Teakell was brought to England
in the wave of migration that followed the Norman Conquest
of 1066. The Teakell family lived in Yorkshire
, at Tickhill.
Early Origins of the Teakell family
The surname Teakell was first found in Yorkshire
where they held a family seat
as Lords of the manor of Tickhill in that shire, somewhere between Bridlington, Pockington, and Dadsley, all of which are on the outskirts of Tickhill. It is likely that they held a family seat there after the Conquest; however there is a possibility that there is some association with the Norman noble Roger de Bully who held estates in Nottingham
, and he built a castle at Tickhill, four miles to the northwest of the Honour of Blyth in Nottingham
. Records of the name include William de Tikehill, listed in the Pipe Rolls
in 1175; and Roger de Tikell listed in the Subsidy Rolls

Migration of the Teakell family to the New World and Oceana
For many English families, the social climate in England
was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. For such families, the shores of Ireland
, and the New World beckoned. They left their homeland at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. Many arrived after the long voyage sick, starving, and without a penny. But even those were greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. Numerous English settlers who arrived in the United States and Canada at this time went on to make important contributions to the developing cultures of those countries. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Teakell were among those contributors: Peter and Werner Tickel who settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1754; George Tickel, who came to Philadelphia in 1808; Michael Tickel, who arrived in Maryland in 1765.
