The DuVall family in this country can trace it's roots back to 15th century France. My branch of this family can trace it roots through to Mareen DuVall The Elder who immigrated to America in the 17th century. He settled in Anne Arundel County, MD and the family spread out from there. My great-grandmother's (Ella Maude Duvall) family stayed in Maryland.
