Origins Available: English
According to family tradition, the Trumbell surname comes from when a member of the Rule family saved the life of King Robert the Bruce at Stirling
Park from a charging bull by turning the bull's head. The grateful King decreed that in commemoration of the brave act the new name of the family would be Turnbull, and granted them an area of land then known as Bedrule. Other Etymology suggests that the name comes from the Old English Trumbald, meaning "strongly bold."
