Bardell Family HistoryThere are two possible origins for this medieval surname. The first is English locational, being a slightly reduced form of the Suffolk village "Bardwell" which itself derives from the Olde English "bearda-waella" meaning the spring on the bank or possibly "the spring of the bearded one!". It is likely that most modern name holders descend from this source probably as a result of the village being "cleared" Circa 1500 and the inhabitants driven off, to facilitate agricultural development, specifically sheep farming which required many fewer workers.
