Howell Genealogy & History

Howell is a Welsh name. It was derived from the Old Welsh personal name "Hywel", which meant "eminent" or "prominent". It could also have arisen as a locational name from a town named "Howell" in Lincolnshire, a name derived from the Old English given name "Huna" (from "hun", meaning "bear cub") and "well", meaning "stream" or "spring". Recorded Howell family history begins with Geffrei Hoel (an alternate spelling), who lived in Devonshire around 1100. Howell genealogy includes Varina Banks Howell Davis, the first lady of the Confederacy, and Leonard Howell, the founder of Rastafarianism. The Tudor royalty were also descended from the Howells.
