The distinguished surname Mayell is one of the many names that was brought to England in the wake of the Norman Conquest of 1066. The name is derived from the Middle English personal name "Mihel," which was a vernacular form of "Michael," meaning "Who is like the Lord?"

Mayell Early Origins



The surname Mayell was first found in Norfolk, where the given name Mihel is thought to have emerged. The earliest known bearer of the surname was John Mihell, who was recorded in the Subsidy Rolls of Suffolk in 1524.
