Where did the Spanish Camarillo family come from? What is the Spanish Camarillo family crest and coat of arms? When did the Camarillo family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Camarillo family history?

The distinguished Spanish surname Camarillo is of locative origin, being based on a physical or geographic feature found in the vicinity of the eponymous bearer's place of abode. In this case, the Spanish word "camara" means "granary or barn," and the surname would indicate that the original bearer lived beside a granary. In the feudal manors and estates of the Middle Ages, the granary would have been used by the lord's extensive household, and would have been a local landmark.
