An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The Norrell surname is thought to be derived from the name of a place in England named Northwell. The name of this place combines the old English term for "north" with other geographic features such as "welle," meaning "a well or spring." There are also no doubt instances of this name that are derived from a shortened form of the Scottish name Normanville (ultimately of Norman French origin).

Norrell Early Origins



The surname Norrell was first found in Nottinghamshire, where there was a place named Northwell, that may be the origin of this surname.
