Origins of surname

This name was given to a man who made and or sold chains, fetters, and shackles, from the old English sceacol or middle English schackel, meaning a chain or bond. Or alternatively, it is derived from the medieval personal name 'Schackel', a translation of the Viking Skokull, meaning 'wagon pole', and given to a tall, thin man.

Early records

The name first appears in Jersey in the St Lawrence registers in the 1870s. The family, which can be traced back to the 17th century originated in Devon and then moved to Somerset, before a branch was established in Jersey.
