Subject: [ARKLESS] Origin of Arkless
Date: Mon, 13 Nov 2006 20:47:52 +0000 (UTC)

The origin of Arkless seems to be from the Whickham area of Co Durham and I have found them there since the late 1600's. The spelling Arckless seems to have come later possibly around the late 1800's.

The name Arkle also comes from the NE Co Durham area.

I have found Arculus from the Worcs area of the West Midlands but I have not made any connection yet.
