Fussell Early Origins



The surname Fussell was first found in Cambridgeshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. 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 13th century when they held estates in that shire.

As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Fussell has been recorded under many different variations, including Fusswell, Fussell, Fuswell, Fuswel, Fussel and many more.

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 Fussell or a variant listed above:

Fussell Settlers in United States in the 17th Century

  • Simon Fussell, who arrived in Virginia in 1664

Fussell Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • John Fussell, who landed in Texas in 1830
