Terkill History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The Terkill surname is derived from an Old Norse personal name, which was in common use throughout England during the Middle Ages.

Early Origins of the Terkill family


The surname Terkill was first found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 11th century when they held estates in that shire.
