Tyrrell Family Crest The surname Tyrrell, found in England and Ireland, is derived from a Norman nickname for a stubborn person, from the Old French term
tirel, used of an animal which pulls on the reins, a derivative of tirer meaning “to pull.” The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Ralph Turold, which was dated 1273, in the “Hundred Rolls of Suffolk.” When found in Ireland the name is most frequent in the eastern province of Leinster particularly counties Wicklow, Kildare and Offaly. The name is first recorded in the New World in 1667 when William Tyrrell arrived in Virginia. Today there are approximately 6,000 bearers of the name Tyrrell living in the United States.
