I do not know where my POPWELLS/POPPELLS originated but I have a strong suspicion it was in England. The book, SURNAMES OF THE UNITED KINGDOM, by Henry Harrison, 1969, gives the following meanings: 1) Pople, dweller by a poplar tree and 2) Popplewell, dweller at a poplar spring. I would be interested in other theories.
