The placename means "the courtyard", derived from the Late Latin word "arealis", open space, courtyard, itself a derivative of the Latin area, used in the sense of a threshing floor. The surname "Darell" is formed from the placename "Airel" with the fused French preposition "de", of, the surname development has included Dearle (1563, Norfolk), Darrell (1583, London) Dearell (1585, Hants.), Darill (1695, London), and Derell (1783, ibid.). The modern surname can be found as Dearle, Dearl, Darell, and Dorell. The marriage of one William Dearle to Ann Trafman was recorded at St. Mary's, Marylebone, London, on May 20th, 1677. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of William Darell, which was dated circa 1206, in the Sesay, Yorkshire Pipe Rolls, during the reign of King John, known as "Lackland", 1199 - 1216. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.
