Darnell Genealogy & History

Darnell is an English surname that comes ultimately from the French darnal, a plant used for medicines and sometimes for recreational drugs, though evidence for its efficacy in the latter is spotty. There is also a village named Darnell, which was named for its crop but likely also gave some people a locational surname. Darnell family history starts in 1095, when Godwine Dernel was baptized in the Abbey of Bury St. Edmunds in Suffolk. Some notable members of Darnell genealogy are Speaker of the Texas House (both before and after statehood) Nicholas Darnell, former Tennessee Secretary of State Riley Darnell, and actress Linda Darnell.
