Origins Available: English
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.
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.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Tyrell, Terrell, Terrill, Tyrill, Tirell, Tyrrell and many more.
