Families covered: Darell (Darrell) of Calehill, Darell of Pageham, Darell of Scotney
[Much of this page was previously included within Darell01. It was moved here to facilitate review & expansion using CountyGen (Sussex).]

Visitation (Kent, 1619) spells the family name as Darrell or Dorrell and Berry spells it as Darrell whilst various cross-referring sources use Dayrell. Provisionally we keep to using 'Darell' which is what we used when much of the following was included within Darell01.
