MANSELL Family History

This famous surname has three possible origins, two French and one English. The first, and most likely, being a French locational name from the Olde French "Mansel" given to an inhabitant of Maine (North West France) or its capital Le Mans. In France, "mansel" was also a status name for a feudal tenant who occupied a Manse (an area of land sufficient to support a family). The third possibility is that it derives from the Olde English, personal name "mann", latinized as Manzellinus. One, Mansell de Patleshull is recorded in the 1203 Assize Court Rolls of Staffordshire. The first recording of the surname is however earlier, see below...
