"ARKLE. From Arkil the Old Danish and Old Swedish form of the Old Norse personal name Arnkettil. Arkill the seneschal witnessed a grant by Gillemor, son of Gilleconel to the church of Lesmahagow before 1144 (Kelso, 187). Henricus filius Arkilli witnessed a charter by Hugh de Normanville of the lands of _Kelvesete (Kelfsete in body of the charter) and Faulawe to the Abbey of Melrose in the reign of William the Lion (Melros, i, p. 81). A later Arkill was seneschal of Mat-lien, c. 1249-86 (RHM, i, p. 5), and another Arkil held land near Haddington in the reign of David n (Lawrie, p. 149). Malcolm Arkle was admitted burgess of Aberdeen in 1534 (NSCM., i, p. 53), and John Arkill held knd in Clackmannane in 1537 (ER., xvn, p. 737). Robert Arkill was occupier of Quhithauch in 1574 (RRM., m, p. 260), Jean Arcle in Knokane is in record in 1590 (RFC., rv, p. 483), and the name occurs in Ayrshire in 1565 as Arkill (Lains). The surname is still common in Northumberland. The first Arkill mentioned above may be the individual who gave name to Arkleston near Paisley. "(The surnames of Scotland.
