LAVELLE Family History

Recorded in a wide variety of spellings including Lavalle, Lavelle, Laval, Lavall, Deval, Duval, Lavell, and Lavielle, the name is usually of French and often Huguenot protestant origins. When this is the case it is locational or topgraphical, translating as 'of the valley' referring to one who was resident in such a place. It seems to have been mainly introduced into Britain with the second of the great influxes of French and Flemish Huguenot refugees in the early 18th century. This of course does not effect the origin and meaning, except that in Britain confusion can arise through the closeness of spelling with the Irish clan name 'Lavelle', also found as Lawell, Lovell and Lavell...
