Parcil History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The vast movement of people that followed the Norman Conquest of England of 1066 brought the Parcil family name to the British Isles. They lived in Staffordshire, at Pearsall, from whence they took their name.

Early Origins of the Parcil family


The surname Parcil was first found in Staffordshire where they held an estate now known as Pearshall, Peshale or Pershall. "The family are of Norman origin, having been founded a the place referred to by Robert, a follower of Robert of Stafford, early in the reign of the Conqueror." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Robert Fitz Gilbert de Corbeil, acquired the manor of Peshale, and his son Robert was the first to begin calling himself de Peshale after the name of this manor.

Parcil Spelling Variations


A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Pearsall, Pershall, Persall, Parsil, Parcell, Parcel and many more.

Migration of the Parcil family to the New World and Oceana


Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Parcil or a variant listed above:
