Multiple Origins for the Surname Tyrrell


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.

Tyrrell Early Origins



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.
