Early Origins of the Terrall family
The surname Terrall was first found in Ross-shire
(Gaelic: Siorrachd Rois) a former county, now part of the Council Areas of Highland and Western Isles in Northern Scotland
, which emerged from the Gaelic lordship of the Earl of Ross, where they held a family seat
on the lands of Tarrel in the barony of Tarbat. From early times they were a sept of the Ross Clan
and later had close ties with the McIntoshes. However, they were a fierce and warlike Clan
, and it is unlikely that their strength called for great allegiances with a larger Clan
. They followed the Earls of Ross.
