    1. [JEAL] New group set up to replace this Rootsweb one for JEAL
    2. Wendy Howard
    3. Following feedback from my previous posts (see below), I have set up a new group at groups.io to replace this Rootsweb list which will be disappearing soon. You will find the new group here - https://groups.io/g/jeal-surname If you want to join the new group, please go and do so, and participate in discussions there. I look forward to seeing you there. :-) Wendy Rootsweb list admin/owner ---------- Forwarded message --------- From: Wendy Howard <wendy.howard@gmail.com> Date: Sun, Feb 23, 2020 at 4:20 PM Subject: Last chance if you want this mailing list to continue at another site To: <garvin@rootsweb.com> The Rootsweb mailing lists will cease to function in about a week's time. If this is news to you, please read the older emails I've copied below. I've not had feedback from this list that anyone wants it to continue. You've had time to think about it now - would you like to see it continue elsewhere? Reply and let me know if you do, and I will set up a new group at groups.io - I've already done this for the groups that have responded positively.

I'm not going to do all the work and have not activity from its members, so do think about it before replying. Suitable places include Google Groups (which act like mailing lists and message boards combined, and you don't have to have a Google account to be there, but it helps), and Facebook. If you have another suggestion, please let me know. Please take care to ensure any replies are sent to the mailing list, not to me personally, unless there is an administrative issue you wish to raise with me. It would be nice if the list went out with a flurry of activity as we all share our latest discoveries before it is turned off.

    2. David&Norma Brown
    3. Yes, I think it would be useful to have the JEAL list continue on groups.io. I have just reviewed my tree for JEALs and there must be people who would still appreciate a place to exchange info. It has been a long time since I have added anything to my JEAL tree. For health reasons I am not doing any research but am willing to exchange info with new genealogists.

I just discovered your original post from 10 years ago! I live in Canada. My maternal grandmother was a Jeal from Dorking, Surrey...her entire family emigrated to Canada in 1905. I have traced the family and its collateral lines a fair amount. It's clear that those Dorking Jeals originally came from Warnham, Sussex. Could I compare notes with you sometime to see if there is a connection? There is a myth circulating in our family that the Jeal surname was created from the first letter of the names of four Huegonot brothers who fled to England to escape persecution in their home land.

Author: eltangon Surnames: Jeal Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.jeal/76.3/mb.ashx Message Board Post: Surname: Jeal This unusual and interesting name is a dialectual variant of the pre 10th century biblical given name Julian or Julius, which was borne by a number of early saints. The derivation is from the Latin "Iulianus", meaning hairy or downy, and was originally a Roman Clan name for a tribal family renowed for their long, flowing, locks, of which Julius Caesar was a member. The name was probably introduced into England by the French after the 1066 Norman Invasion, or perhaps by the later Crusaders on their return from the Holy Land. In medieval times the name was borne in the same form by women, hence the modern girls' name Gillian. In the modern surnames the spellings include Jell, Geal, Gell, and Gelle. In England the name attained such favour that Jack and Jill took the place of Godric and Godivu as the representatives of the sexes. Early examples of the surname recordings include at St. Annes church, Blackfriars, London, John Jeal was christened in 1682 and later Anne Geal was ch! ristened in 1699. The first recorded spelling of the family name is believed to be that of John Jelle, which was dated 1296, in the "Subsidy Rolls of the county of Sussex". This was during the reign of King Edward 1st, known as "The Hammer of the Scots", 1272 - 1307. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.
