Where did the Irish Tyrrell family come from? What is the Irish Tyrrell family crest and coat of arms? When did the Tyrrell family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Tyrrell family history?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.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Tyrell, Terrell, Terrill, Tyrill, Tirell, Tyrrell and many more.
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.
