I find my ancestor, John Durell (Durall) in sampson/Duplin County North Carolina as witness at the court of pleas and quarter-sessions in 1783, but his name is spelled Deverrell in the document. His family was in Onslow County North Carolina up until the very early 1780s. This is the only time I have ever seen our name spelled as Deverrell and I wonder, given the fact that most couldn't read or write, if it might actually be the correct spelling.
Does anyone have any information on Deverrells in the Eastern Colonies prior to 1780?
