NEWELL Family History

This interesting surname with variant spelling "Newhall" and "Newall", has three possible sources. It may be a topographical name for someone who lived at a "new hall", or an occupational name form someone who worked in one, from the Old English words "Neowe", new, and "heall", hall. Thirdly, it may be locational from "Newhall", a township in both Cheshire and Yorkshire. Thus the name is most widespread in both of these counties. The name is first recorded in the late 12th Century. Early recordings of the name include John de Newhalle who is mentioned in the "Pardons Roll of Cambridge", in 1383, and Hugo de Neuhalle, entered in the "Poll Tax Returns of Yorkshire" in 1379...
