Ebrill of Limerick city


Origin of Ebrill

The family tradition is that the Ebrills were of Huguenot origin (Protestants from France fleeing persecution).
Though it looks like John Ebrill raised his children Catholic (i.e. they were Catholic pre-1805).

William Ebrill (bapt 1869) thought they were Huguenot.
Brian Ebrill's family thought they were possibly from the Brittany region. Charles S. Ebrill thought the Lyon region.
Felicity Ebrill said the family name had originally been d'Avril, and that her father Charles Ebrill had Protestant cousins.
