The Hall surname can be found in many regions of Scotland and England and the origins of this surname are as varied as the locations it is found. One source identifies it as a person who worked in or managed a manor house or "hall". Another source is that an Arthur Fitz William changed his name to Hall so that he would be distinguished separately from his brother. Regardless of the earliest acquisition of the Hall surname men and women who bore that name played a part in Anglo Scottish history.
