Wyrrel Early Origins



The surname Wyrrel was first found in Cheshire at Wirral, a peninsula bounded by the River Dee, the River Mersey and to the north the Irish Sea. Historically part of Cheshire, its boundaries were set in the Domesday Book as "Two arrow falls from Chester City Walls." Actually, the place name dates back further to at least the 10th century where it was listed as Wirhealum and Wirheale. The name literally means "place at the nook(s) where bog-myrtle grows."

Another reference gives a different meaning of the Wirheal as "myrtle-corner", from the Old English wir, a myrtle tree, and heal, an angle, corner or slope. Bog myrtle or myrica gale is a species of a deciduous shrub and flowering plant that is also named sweet gale. The Hundred of Wirral is the ancient administrative area for the Wirral Peninsula.
