I'm a Bell and believe my name is from Scottish origin
Just discovered my great-grandmother was a Bell, born in 1893, but I can't seem to find any info on her parents. The belief is that they emigrated from Ireland and I want to see if this is true.

Randomly decided to google the origins of my last name. It always seemed like an odd surname to me, so yeah. I see that the 1st name John(y) seems to run in it a lot. Which my father and brother have. I've been wondering if this surname name belongs to a single family tree only, or if multiple family trees started it too. It'd be pretty cool if it is haha.

I've also notice that the names Sara, Margaret, and James have ran through my family tree a lot aswell.
lots of John, William, and Robert in my line. also, an Alllison, my great grandfather. family lore is that they came fron N. Ireland.
There were I think three other people at my high school with the last name Bell. I never actually ran into them, but granted my school had about 400 people in my class alone. From what I've heard from my family, we're Scots Irish. Something to do with originating in Scotland and later spreading to Ireland.
I am trying to find my dads side of the family who where from Burnley Lancashire his name was Grahame Bell and his parent where called Rita and Colin Bell
My maiden name was Bell. My great grandfather was called David Bell and originally came from Ayrshire in Scotland.
I have just traced my BELL lineage through David Bell and Bethea Martin , New Kent County, VA. They were born in 1673 and 1678 respectively. I would love to find out more. Does anyone out there have any info on their parentage. I've traced my back from the two above to me.
I have a full family tree of the Bell family ....starting from George Bell born 1751 married to Ann Watson 1771 in Alnwick sourced from the parish register at St Michael's Alnwick, Northumberland... This goes through all history records detailing the Bell family descendants arrival to Wellington New Zealand aboard the "Adelaide" in March 1840...This Family Tree also lists all descendants to present day...It is a fascinating read..

My ancestors came from St.Mungo or Hoddam, Scotland. My GGG Grandfather John was born 1805/06 and he married Margaret Carlyle in 1830. If any one may be related to this family, please contact me through ancestry.com if you are on that web site at all.
