Col Daniel Axtell (1622-1660), The Regicide


Welcome to the website for the One Name Study of the Axtell surname.

Axtell is an old name which probably dates back to the time of the Vikings. The name is derived from Ashkettle or Asketillus which means God and Kettle or sacrifical cauldron in Old Norse. A person with the name Ashkettle would have oversean the sacrificial rites of pre-Christian England. The first Axtells probably arrived in England after 1066 as part of the emigration that followed the Norman Conquest. They seem to have first settled in Norfolk, before moving on to other areas, primarily Buckinghamshire.

Spelling variations of Axtell include Axstell, Axtel, Axstel, Axtill, Axstill, Axtil, Axstil, Axell, Axill, Akstell, Akstill, Ashkettle, Askettle, Asketell, Asketel, Asketill, Asketil, and Asktyl. This website is mostly concerned with Axtell but will include all other variations.
