    Name Meaning

    English: usually an occupational name ‘farrier’, occasionally a status name ‘chief official of a royal household or court; a high officer of state’, from Middle English mareshal and Old French maresc(h)al. An even wider range of meanings is found in some other languages: compare for example Polish Marszałek (see Marszalek ). This name has been established in Ireland since the 13th century. It is also borne by Jews, presumably as an Americanized form of one or more similar (like-sounding) Jewish surnames.

    Americanized form of German Marschall .

    Americanized form of French Mercier .
