There is technically they are Russian decent/Russian the czar of Russia's family mixed with the French. Eventually they end up in Canada. Where there are tons of French and Russians (Canadian = French/Russian decent and sometimes Native North American AKA Apache) Many of the Quibell's are whiter then a ghost, some have Native American Genes. There are some Quibell's in Utah in the United States, Moscow Russia, France, Canada, and Glendale California which tend to have no french in them, but are mixed with Armenians. There are even English people with the last name because Royalty has married Royalty. There are also sever spellings of this last name. So don't just consider the one spelling it is the only family with this last name and it's reach is very far. I had a friend in High school LOL, well he tried to hook me up with his cousin he is Russian mixed with Armenian his last name was Kavarian before he had it changed well lets just say it bothered me to much and we found out we were distant cousins because his cousin's last name was Quibell. I had to explain why I felt uncomfortable and odd. His Mom did a genealogy search because she was curious we are like 12th cousins.
