Terrell Genealogy & History

Terrell is an English nickname with Viking or Old French origins. More accepted is the derivation from Old French "tirel", meaning to pull (as on reins), a nickname for a stubborn person. Another possible derivation is from the Old Danish female given name "Thorold" or the Old English given name "Tyrel", meaning thunder-ruler (like gods Zeus and Thor) or stubborn. In Terrell genealogy, name variations can include Tarell, Terel, Terrill, Tirell, Turle, and Tyrell. The Terrell feudal home (family seat) was in Essex near London; the coat of arms has two blue chevrons symbolizing faithful service. American Terrell family history began in Virginia in 1637.
