Origins of surname

This name is common in the Manche department of Normandy and adjoining Ile-et-Vilaine in Brittany. It's origin is uncertain but it may be a diminuitive of Thierry. Alternatively it may be a diminuitive of the old French tire, the name given to silk cloth. Variant spellings are found elsewhere in France.

Early records

The name first appears in church records in the first decade of the 19th century, but the name must have been present earlier and the family then died out because, as our Comprehensive list of Jersey surnames shows, there was a record for Tirel in 1607.
