Origin Displayed: English

Spelling variations of this family name include: Parnell, Parnel, Parnall and others.

First found in Cheshire where they were seated from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Some of the first settlers of this family name or some of its variants were: Walter and William Parnell, who arrived in Virginia in 1623; Edward Parnell, who came to Bermuda in 1635; Daniel Parnell, who settled in Georgia with his wife in 1735.

Motto Translated: Follow worthy things.

The Parnell name is thought to be derived from the medieval female personal name “Peronel, Pernel, Parnell,” which came from the Latin “Petronilla,” or “Petronia,” which was the name of an early Roman martyr. Other sources suggest that the Parnell name is a reference to Pernelle, Normandy, a place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066.
