Surname Spelled with One L
Posted by: Barbara Stabley (ID *****6786) Date: August 05, 2007 at 11:22:53

My DONNELs used the one L spelling throughout their early history in American, starting with John Donnel in Northumberland Co., PA in 1772. Nearly all records found for this family through the late 1800s shows the spelling with one L. Does anyone know the significance of this? As far as I know, the family came from either Northern Ireland (perhaps County Antrim) or Scotland. Associated family names are FLEMING, HUNTER, STEWART, GOBIN, NEWLAND, BOYD, FOSTER, HOPKINS and NICHOLS in PA, MD, OH and/or VA.
