Cottrell Genealogy & History

Cottrell family history notes that this interesting name is a diminutive of Cotter, itself introduced by the Normans after the Conquest of 1066. The name denotes a serf or bond tenant who held his cottage by labor service rather than by paying rent; the Old French cotier means cottage. The name was first found in Derbyshire. The first recorded spelling of the family name was William Coterel, in 1130, in the Pipe Rolls of London; Edward Cotterell settled in Virginia in 1635. Cottrell genealogy includes Seventh-Day Adventist theologian Raymond Cottrell; Church of England Bishop of Chelmsford Stephen Cottrell; and jazz reedist Louis Cottrell, Jr.
