Early records

This name has been present in Jersey since the 17th century.


  • Gottrel
  • Gottrell
  • Gotrel
  • Gatherall - Extract from the Newfoundland Encyclopedia entry for Bauline East: "According to Theresa Mary Bryce, Bauline was first permanently settled by a Gatherall family from Jersey in the late 18th Century". Gatherall is not a name found in Jersey, but if the tradition of Jersey origins for the Gatheralls is correct the name could possibly be a variant of the surname Gottrel. JMurray
