The roots of the Anglo-Saxon name Quarrells come from when the family resided in the county of Norfolk. Quarrells 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 Quarrells family lived at the quarel, which simply meant that the family resided near a quarry.

Quarrells Early Origins



The surname Quarrells 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



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Quarrells or a variant listed above: 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..
