Hi to all Tyrrell's
My lineage come from london uk, cant trace to far back. Have been told all of us are related and date back to a Tyrrell who supposedly killed the twin princes in the white tower in the tower of london. Has anyone else heard this story?
I pronounce it like squirrell by the way
Would love to trace my family tree, I am a Jamaican didn't know where the name originated from. Good to know.
My name is Leonard S. Tyrrell
My Father’s name was Leonard Harding Tyrrell
Son of John R. Tyrrell and May (Mamie) Harding Tyrrell
My father was born in Grass Valley CA. in 1901.
He was the youngest of 9 children.
If this information sounds familiar to you, contact me at:
I always wondered how other Tyrrell's pronounce the name...I have given up trying to correct people when they say it. Rhyme it with "Carol"...like Carol of the Bells...but with a "T" and that's how I pronounce it. Anybody else like that?
Hey there are a lot of us about you are not alone
I'm going to start tracing back my family tree... 1900s based in Roscommon Ireland and see if I can go further back
The name Tyrrell dates back to the Bayeaux tapestry where Turold is mentioned.In the US it is Tirrell. My great grandmothers family was french and their name was Tourell with quite a few different spellings going back through the family tree. A tourell in France means "Siege Tower". The older version of this french name was also Turold.Walter Tirel was related also to Turold and it was Walter who accidently killed William Rufus whilst hunting in the new forest .It is fair to say that all the versions have their roots from Norman France and earlier to the area of land of the northmen (Norse) between Norway and Sweden called Varmland.
My family traces back to scotish clearings and australia (surname of my father is Rutherford) though I actually get my surname from my mother's side. No idea what my origins are there...
