Newhall History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: English , Scottish


The Newhall family can be traced back to the border region between England and Scotland. The name Newhall is of several possible origins; firstly, it may be derived from the Old French "noël," meaning "Christmas," in which case it would have been brought to the region in the wake of the Norman Conquest, or, in a later era, by French Huguenots fleeing religious persecution. Alternatively, it may be derived from "Newhall," the name of places located in the shires of Chester and York. Finally, the surname may from the Old English term meaning "dweller at the new hall," and would in this case refer to people living near a new hall, probably one distinct from an old hall.


Early Origins of the Newhall family


The surname Newhall was first found in Yorkshire, where Robert de Niwehal was living in 1195. In this instance, the name signifies "dweller at the new hall."
