Merrill Genealogy & History

Merrill genealogy typically goes back to the British isles, especially Ireland and England, but may also be Scandinavian or French. When it is Irish, it derives from the Gaelic name "Muirgheal", which translates as "sea-bright." Alternate spellings include Murrell, Meriel, and Murrell. Some suggest that the Vikings may have also brought the name into England, but this is unclear. It may also be a locational name from "Merryhill", taken from a number of places of that name. Merrill family history includes such notable people as Civil War Army officer Lewis Merrill, Merrill Lynch namesake Charles E. Merrill, and opera singer Robert Merrill.
