Note:

 

At this date 9-4-2005,I have reason to beleive that prior to the Du Merle name,it was

Blackbird.Pierre Du Merle could be Pierre Blackbird,born about 1422 .All though

I believe the name is tied to the Merrill name,and a immigration came about due to the St Bartholmew Massacre in 1572,the Merrill name is first recorded with

Thomas Meryell who died in 1464,Wherstead,county of Suffolk.
