Name Meaning

English (chiefly West Midlands): habitational name from any of the various places so called, from Old English sūð ‘south’ + halh ‘nook’, ‘recess’. The distribution of the surname in Britain makes a Midlands origin likely: places called Southall in Doverdale, Worcestershire, and Billingsley, Shropshire, are possible sources.
