Name Meaning

Welsh (Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire): unexplained. The name is associated from an early date (1184 and 1250) with two fortified manors in Glamorgan: Scurlage, in Llanddewi in the Gower Peninsula, and Scurla or Scurla', now known as Trecastell, in Llanharry. The origins of the placenames are uncertain; it is not known whether they contain the surname, or whether the surname derives from one or other of them.
