I have traced my Feazell line back to Philip M Feazell (the immigrant) who came here in the 1730's. The original name was spelled Feisel or Fiesel. The spelling was changed when he moved his family to Virginia after the Revolution. He boarded the ship in Rotterdam, Holland. I was told he may have come from the Palatinate area. He must have been educated because he signed his name on the ship's manifest of passengers.
