This interesting name is of Norman-French, origin, and is a locational surname from the place called "Venables" in the arrondissement of Louviers, in Eure, Normandy. The surname was introduced into England by followers of William the Conqueror after the Conquest of 1066. The placename is derived from the Latin word "venabulum", hunting ground, a derivative of the verb "venari", to hunt. The surname was first recorded in the beginning of the 13th Century (see below), and the modern surname has the unusual distinction of surviving unchanged for seven hundred years. One William de Venables is recorded in the Shropshire Hundred Rolls of 1275, and Thomas Venables, of Buckinghamshire, appears in the Register of the University of Oxford for 1616. The marriage of William Venables and Margaret Bryan was recorded at St. Gregory by St. Paul, London, on April 19th 1573. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of William de Venables, which was dated circa 1200, in the "Chartulary of Whalley Abbey", Lancashire, during the reign of King John, known as "Lackland", 1199 - 1216.


Hugh Venables was the Sheriff of Cheshire.
