Meaning & History

The name Cartmill is an old Anglo-Saxon name. It comes from when a family lived in or near the village of Cartmel in the county of Lancashire (now part of Cumbria.) Thus, Cartmill is a habitation surname which is derived from the name of a place. Like most English local surnames, the name Cartmill was originally preceded by a preposition such as de. However, the preposition had usually been dropped from the name by the end of the 14th century. 'The Staffordshire variants of this surname seem to have come from North Lancashire via Cheshire.'
