BURCHILL Family History

This name is a late medieval locational transposition. It derives from the original spelling of the Olde Lancashire village name 'Biekel' (1246) and the later (1347) 'Birkehill', but from the 17th Century known and spelt as 'Birtle'. The meaning of the name is 'Birch - Hill' from the Olde English 'Birc - halh' of the pre 7th Century period. In the original name recordings the village spelling is given in both its old and new spelling, although 'Birtles' is purely a local dialectual pronunciation which eventually became the norm! The name developments include Agnes Burchall (1635) Alice Burchell (1688) Aprah Birchall (1701) and Ann Birchill (1732).
