Alternatively, a nickname for someone who had some special connection with the Christmas season, such as owing the particular feudal duty of providing a yule-log to the lord of the manor, or having given a memorable performance as the Lord of Misrule. This surname is also found in the Flemish part of Belgium. Compare Christmas and Newell .
English: sometimes a post-medieval variant of Knowle and Knoll (see Knowles ). The loss of /k/ before /n/ is known in everyday speech by the 17th century and may have been earlier.
