The ancient roots of the Quarelle family name are in the Anglo-Saxon culture. The name Quarelle comes from when the family lived in the county of Norfolk. Quarelle 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 Quarelle family lived at the quarel, which simply meant that the family resided near a quarry.

Quarelle Early Origins



The surname Quarelle 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



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Quarelle arrived in North America very early: 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..
