Bell Genealogy & History

Bell is an English and Scottish name that can also be found in France. It can be occupational, deriving from Old English "belle", meaning "bell" and signifying a bell-ringer; it may be locational for someone living near a bell; or it can even be descriptive, derived from the medieval English/Scottish given name/nickname "Bel", derived from Old French "beu"/"bel", meaning "handsome". English Bell family history dates back long before the Norman Conquest to Dumfriesshire, where they held a family seat (feudal manor), with a 1086 record for Ailuuardus filius Bell in Suffolk. American Bell genealogy includes emigration to Virginia in 1638.
