Tyrrell History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: English, Irish


The surname Tyrrell is derived from the Old French word "tirel," derived from "tirer," "to pull." The word was often used to refer to an animal that pulled carts; thus it may be that it was used as a nickname for a stubborn person, before coming to be used as a hereditary surname.

Early Origins of the Tyrrell family


The surname Tyrrell was first found in Westmeath (Irish: An Iarmhí) in the Irish Midlands, province of Leinster, where a Tyrrell family obtained a grant of most of the barony of Fertullagh, as well as the lordship of Castleknock in County Dublin.
