SPROULS Family HistoryThis interesting and unusual surname, with variant spellings Spreull, Sproul(s), Sprull(s), Sprowle(s) etc., recorded in Dumbartonshire, Scotland, from the late 13th Century is believed to derive from the old Gaelic "Spruill(e)" literally meaning "fragment" or "morsel", and used in a figurative sense to describe someone of small slight stature. Walter Spreul, (see below), obtained a charter of the lands of Dalguhen for homage and service paid to Robert 1, and in 1296 a Wautier Spreul of Lanarkshire rendered homage to John Balliol.
