Ellwel Early Origins



The surname Ellwel was first found in Durham, at Elwick, a township, in the parish of Hart, union of Stockton. "Robert de Brus gave 'Ailewic' in 'Hertenes,' in frank marriage with his daughter Agatha, to Ralph, son of Ribald, of Middleham." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Ellwel were among those contributors: settlers, who arrived along the eastern seaboard, from Newfoundland, to Maine, to Virginia, the Carolinas, and to the islands.
