Meill History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Early Origins of the Meill family


The surname Meill was first found in Cheshire where they held a family seat.This surname is associated with the village of Meolse, which was recorded in the Domesday Book in the year 1086. The lands were described as a coastal village on the southern shore of the Wirral peninsular on the River Dee where Roman and Saxon coins and jewelry were found at Dove Point. Geoffry and Simon de Mele were registered in Cambridgeshire in 1279. North Meols in Lancashire was of great significance to the family in early times.

"At the time of the Domesday Survey, three thanes held this place in three manors. The district now called North Meols afterwards fell to the barons of Penwortham; and in the reign of Richard I., Hugh Bussell assigned to Richard Fitz-Hutred the whole of "Normoles" with its appurtenances, which grant was confirmed by John, Earl of Morton, afterwards king, in whose reign the place gave name to the proprietor, Robert de Meolis."
