An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


When the ancestors of the Curcelles family emigrated to England following the Norman Conquest in 1066 they brought their family name with them. They 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.

Curcelles Early Origins



The surname Curcelles was first found in Normandy, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

Curcelles Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Curcelles has been recorded under many different variations, including Corselis, Corsellis, Curcelles, Curcellis and many more.

The Great Migration



To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Curcelless were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America: Frank Corsell, who came to Indiana in 1844.
