Surnames: Canfield, Cantwell
Would Canfield also be a possible variation of "Cantwell"? I'm trying solve a mystery about an ancestor from Ireland with the surname of Canfield who was said to have actually descended from Cantwell. we have wondered if the name was purposely changed or could it have been a spelling variation?

Surnames: De Canteville, Conteville, Cantwell, Cantrell.
There are indeed. In a book compiled and published by Ann Billings and her mother Dortha Sedgwick, the title being Cantwell and Allied Families of AR, AZ, NM, OK, and TX...there are names that come from Kilkenny, Ireland...the de Cantevilles.
Conteville is a later spelling of that family.
In the United States there were Cantrells and Cantwells. These two names in particular are the same family as siblings of a Cantrell just decided to start spelling their name Cantwell.
