Foxall Name Meaning
English (West Midlands): habitational name from some minor locality, probably the lost Foxhale near Claverley, Shropshire, the name of which is derived from Old English fox ‘fox’ + halh ‘hollow’, ‘recess’. It is less likely that the surname is derived from Foxhall in Suffolk (earlier Foxhole), which is named from Old English fox + hol(h) ‘hollow’, ‘depression’: the surname is not established in East Anglia.
