Terrel History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Early Origins of the Terrel family


The surname Terrel 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.
