CASTILLO Family History

Recorded in the spellings of Castilla, Castillo, Castela, Castille, Castiglioni, Castiglione, Castillion, etc., this is a locational or regional surname which derives from the former independent kingdom of Castille, now a province within Spain. Curiously the name was originally French, the name deriving from the pre 10th century Provencal 'castel' (a castel) and vieil, meaning old, the old castle. 'Castille' was an area which was under continuous occupation from the time of the Romans who held it for three centuries, down through the Vizigoths, the Franks and later the Moors.

Mathew didn't like his step-father so he ran off to London to apprenticed to be a tailor and then later sailed to America arriving about 1775. According to Mathew the younger, Mathew Sr. came from Spain and married the Irish woman Polly Higgins. That is all the information that I have. I know Irish records are extremely hard to research especially during those early times but I am hoping you can help me learn more about this family. Thank you for your time. Louese
