Fowal Early Origins



The surname Fowal was first found in Devon where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor said to have been seated there well before the Norman Conquest. 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 10th century when they held estates at Fowelscombe in that shire.

The Great Migration



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 Fowal or a variant listed above: Edmond Fowell, who came to Virginia in 1666; James Fowell, on record in the Windward Islands in 1722; John Fowell, who received a land grant in Virginia in 1666.
