Coursellis is a name of ancient Norman origin. It arrived in England with the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Coursellis family lived in Rouen, Normandy. The name, however, derives from a number of places which derive their names from the Latin root, corticella, which means court.

Coursellis Spelling Variations



Endless spelling variations are a prevailing characteristic of Norman surnames. Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules, and the introduction of Norman French added an unfamiliar ingredient to the English linguistic stew. French and Latin, the languages of the court, also influenced spellings. Finally, Medieval scribes generally spelled words according to how they sounded, so one person was often referred to by different spellings in different documents. The name has been spelled Corselis, Corsellis, Curcelles, Curcellis and many more.

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious persecution within England at the time, many English families left for the various British colonies abroad. The voyage was extremely difficult, though, and the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving. But for those who made it, the trip was most often worth it. Many of the families who arrived went on to make valuable contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families reveals a number of immigrants bearing the name Coursellis or a variant listed above: Frank Corsell, who came to Indiana in 1844.
