Abrahal History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms




Early Origins of the Abrahal family


The surname Abrahal was first found in Herefordshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 13thh century when they held estates in that shire.

Migration of the Abrahal family to the New World and Oceana


For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Abrahal or a variant listed above: Richard Abrahall, who arrived in Maryland between 1655-1658; Robert Abrahall in Virginia between 1659 and 1660; Robert Abrahall was recorded in Virginia in 1681.
