First of all, it came from the original spelling of Cuthrell. You will find many variations while researching this surname. I have seen the following spellings: Cutrell, Cuthrell, Cottrell, Cotrell, Catrill, Catril, Cutereal, Cuterel, etc.

Too many to name them all, but I wish you luck in locating records.

I know only as far back as Virginia. I don't know for sure who the immigrant was. Try the Cuthrell message board and/or mailing list.

My father was a Cutrell. Some of his family lived in North Carolina and some of us are in Charleston South Carolina. Don't know much of our ancestors tho.

Jeanne,
I believe that there are two Cutrell family trees in the U.S. Mine is centered in Danville Illinois. According to my maternal grandmother, our "Patriarch" was a cutler (sharpened plow blades, knifes, etc)at Quarr Abbey on the Isle of Wight, U.K. Quarr Abbey was siezed by Henry VIII and all the records were destroyed.
It may just hold some merit. She had told me that an ancestor of mine piloted a submarine before the Civil War and in sunk in the Great Lakes. I didn't believe it. Before the Civil War? Then I found it. Philips Submersible, sunk in Lake Eire in the 1850's while attempting cargo recovery from a sunken ship. Maybe Grandma has it right.
