The present generation of the Quarlass family is only the most recent to bear a name that dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name comes from having lived in the county of Norfolk. Quarlass 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 Quarlass family lived at the quarel, which simply meant that the family resided near a quarry.

Quarlass Early Origins



The surname Quarlass 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.

Quarlass Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Quarlass include Quarles, Quarell, Quarrells and others.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Quarlass were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: 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..
