Re: History of surname NORWELL
Sadly the URL has gone the way of all ancient relatives ;-). There are many 'sources' of the surname Norwell. In Britain there are the Perth Norwells and the Peterborough Norwells and I understand there may even be an African Amercian US Norwell family. Years ago I was arrogant and ignorant enough to think I could find a link between Perth and Peterborough, but I couldn't and I am now convinced that none existed. I believe it is better to see these surnames as having developed and to look at why and how.
