Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Quarel is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived in the county of Norfolk. Quarel is a topographic surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. In this case the Quarel family lived at the quarel, which simply meant that the family resided near a quarry.

Quarel Early Origins



The surname Quarel was first found in Norfolk where they held a family seat from early times and their first records appeared on the early census rolls taken by the early Kings of Britain to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Quarels to arrive in North America: Ellen Quarrell, who came to Virginia in 1638; Anthony Quarrell, who settled in Virginia in 1653; John Quarrell, who came to Nevis in 1654; and George Quarrell, who settled in Jamaica in 1663..
