CARVILL Family History

Recorded as Carvil, Carvill, Carville (English and French), the Provencal Carvilla, and the Irish MacCarvil, O' Carvil, MacCarvill, O' Carvill, Carvill and Carvil, this is a surname of very confusing origins. If French, Provencal and usually English, it is locational from a place called Carville in the departement of Calvados in Normandy, or from the village of the same name in Seine-Inferieur. Locational surnames are usually 'from' names. That is to say names given to people after they moved from their original homes, to somewhere else, as an easy means of identity.
