Origins Available: English, Scottish


The Norvill 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).

Norvill Early Origins



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