My FamilyTreeDNA Project Website Title- Background



Seawall, Seawell, Sewall, Sewell, Sowell


The SEWELL surname, as brought to this continent by one Henry Sewell of what is now Norfolk, Virginia, has, generally, moved westward since then. Sewells are, at present, spread across the entire North American continent. Many of these 'relatives' have established conventional family trees (on paper), to varying extents, while some have virtually none. Furthermore, the 'link' between Henry of Norfolk (Sewell's Point) and England is not known.
