Re: Darnells in the U.K.
I'd be interested in finding out more about the history of Darnells in the UK too. My family hails from the East End of London and I have never bumped into another Darnell outside my family until yesterday. This lady married into the Darnells in Montrose Scotland where there seems to be a clump of Darnells who have descended from Darnleys(!). There's possibly a Darnell connection with France (Darnelle) but before London, i've no idea where the name has come from.
