The following wording and Coat of Arms above is taken from The Hall of Names Scroll
depicting the family name Kervil. Hall of Names is an American company and the final
paragraphs contain references to people that I do not believe have any connection
to our particular Family Tree.
The other information contained in the Scroll is fascinating and I hope you find
it interesting. In particular the connection between Normandy, the land of the north
men, and the Vikings. I believe that our family name points to a likely connection
with north or north western France. In our particular branch however, unless we can
trace back past the origins of Francis Kervil, our oldest known ancestor, we will
be unable to make any such connection.
Hall of Names Scroll wording
The ancient chronicles of England reveal the early records of the name Kervil as
a Norman surname which ranks as one of the oldest. The history of the name is closely
interwoven within the majestic tapestry as an intrinsic part of the history of Britain.
