--------------------

MERRILL originally Merle, and signifies "blackbird,"

was a native or at least a resident

of France, and took his name from the figure

of a blackbird displayed upon the sign at his door.

The earliest generations of the family in France

used a seal on which is displayed three blackbirds.

In the persecutions following the revocation of the

Edict of Nantes, a Merle, being a Protestant, fled

to England to save his life, and cast his lot with

the Puritans. Some of the family still remain

in France and are still Huguenots, the most distinguished

member of recent years being Merle

D'Aubigne, the historian. As the Huguenots were

of the best people of France, so their descendants

in England and America have been numbered with

the most industrious, the most thrifty, the most

moral, and the most law abiding of those countries
