Moil History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Moil family


The surname Moil was first found in Cornwall where the surname is "not from mule, as the family appear to have imagined when they assumed the arms, 'Gules, a moyle or mule passant argent;' but from a place in or contiguous to the parish of St. Minovor. " [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
