    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from a place in Cheshire called Astle, from Old English ēast ‘east’ + hyll ‘hill’. There may also have been some confusion with Asthall and Astley . Or occasionally this may be a topographic name denoting residence on an ‘east hill’ (from Middle English ast + hill or hull), i.e. a hill to the east of a settlement.

    English: perhaps also a habitational name from Astwell, Northamptonshire, from Old English ēast ‘east’ + wielle ‘spring’.

    English: habitational name from Asthall, Oxfordshire, from Old English ēast ‘east’ + halh ‘nook’.
