Dowdell is one of many variations to the spelling of Dowdall. Dowdall was originally de Duvedal, a Norman name first recorded in Ireland in 1215 per the Dowdall Deeds. My family name is spelled Dowdall. My Grandfather Michael came from County Derry but originally the family came from around the Drogheda, County Louth area. County Louth and Meath are where you find most of the Dowdalls as well as in Dublin. You can email me at
