or Tachel. Sanson Tachel, in 1165, held a knight's fee of the old feoffment of Roger de Moubray in Yorkshire (Liber Niger): and four and a half of his Lincolnshire fief (Testa de Nevill). John Takel held at Traneby, in the East Riding (Kirkby's Inquest). Beatrix, daughter of Gilbert Thakel, was the wife of William de Wentworth of Wentworth-Woodhouse (acquired by his father through an heiress in the time of Henry III.), and the mother of two sons: 1. William, ancestor of the Earls of Strafford; and 2. Richard, Bishop of London and Chancellor of England in 1338. About 1272, Magister Galfrid Takel, Simon Thakel, and Ralph Thakel all occur in the same county: and Alan, Benedict, Matthew, and Robert Takel in Oxfordshire.—Rotuli Hundredorum. The latter was Marshal of Woodstock in 1280: and more than a hundred years after that, a Robert Takel was Prior of Rosedale in Yorkshire. A third Robert, Rector of Marsh-Gibbon in Cambridgeshire, died in 1479.
Another branch of the family apparently existed in the far West. "Sir William Pole speaks of a manor in the parish of Gittisham (three miles from Honiton), belonging, in his time, to the Malets by inheritance from the family of Tacle."—Lysons' Devon. Honiton Church contains the monument of Joan Takell, widow, a.d. 1529.
The name was given to their seat in Essex. William de Takele, Hunts, of Takele in Essex, and his father Elias, occur in 1194-98 (Rotuli Curiae Regis). William de Takele (no doubt the same man) is mentioned in Lincolnshire in 1202. (Rotuli Cancellarii.) Robson gives the arms of Tackle as Or, three magpies proper.
