In Reply to: Origins of Krull? by Grant Everett Krull of 197

All the Krulls I know of are German or Dutch. My Krull ancestors came from Friesland in The Netherlands. The word "krul" means "curl." The tradition is that the family progenitor wore a jacket that curled in the back. The local priest dubbed him "jackenkrul" (curling coat) to distinguish him from other boys with the same first name. I have also read that the name may have been used to describe those with curly hair.
