Mell History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms




Early Origins of the Mell family


The surname Mell was first found in Somerset where Mells (St. Andrew), is a civil parish, in the union of Frome, in the hundred of Mells and Leigh. The parish dates back to pre- Domesday Book and was known as Milne in 942 derived from the Old English word "myln." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

By the time of the Domesday Book the name place name had evolved to "Mulle" or "Mulne" which meant "several mills." At that time, it was part of the land of St Mary of Glastonbury and held land big enough for 20 ploughs. The mill was also operative. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
