Early Origins of the Darwall family


The surname Darwall was first found in Sussex where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Norman influence of English history prevailed after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. The family name was one of many recruited by Henry 1st into England. The family name was first referenced in the 12th century when they held estates in that county. They were from Deville or Davidville in Neufchatel in Normandy.
