    Name Meaning

    English, Welsh, and Irish (of Norman origin): from Old French pourcel ‘little pig’ (from Latin porcellus, a diminutive of porcus ‘pig’), hence a metonymic occupational name for a swineherd, or a nickname, perhaps denoting someone thought to resemble a pig. This surname is common in Ireland, having become established there in the 12th century. There may sometimes be confusion with Pearsall .English: habitational name from Purshull in Elmbridge, Worcestershire. The placename derives from an uncertain first element + Old English hyll ‘hill’.
