Hi Judith - Sorry for this long overdue update but my health is not too good and I have been in and out of hospital three times with btreathing problems!

DEWFALL: The name seems to be mostly found in country places, but could have an origin in the Norman name DEVAL and all its variations. In pre 18th centuries I have not not been able to continue its line but after that we look to recognise its meaning as being "Of the Vale" - primarily found in the west country of England but some have emigrated north and to the Americas during the Fenian era.

The name is not the subject of a One-Name study as afar as I know, due one suspects, to its dearth of instances?

The name Dewfall, as far as I can establish, originated in the West Country and indicated those families living in or on the side of a vale or valley.
Sometimes it is a derivitave of Deval, Duvall etc., from French and/or Spanish origins.
In common with most other names it has become dialectically adopted, the earliest instance of the spelling is in Dorset c. 17th-18th century.

Hi Judith
My Yorkshire interest is mainly my grandmother's family - Burley. . I can only go as far as John Burley who married Mary Brown in 1819 at St Olave's York. I have lurked on your Old English rootweb group for quite a while and enjoy and appreciate the knowledge that is shared. I love palaeography too.

Hi Judith,
Thanks for the welcome :)

Your site is really interesting too! I have often visited Wigfield farm where Arthur Netherwood who is mentioned on your memoriam page was born, it is now owned by Barnsley College and is open to the public as a children's farm. Some of my ancestors were also miners around Barnsley.

I am looking forward to working out how this site works!

Hi Judith,

Of course!

I will have to work it out as well!
