Everyone with the surname BECNEL is connected. The origin of the surname is traced back to April 4, 1742 when "Thomas Becknel married Catherine Bro" at the German Coast of Louisiana. In the margin, the name is spelled "BEGNEL". Over the course of years of switching ownership of Louisiana between France and Spain, the names evolved to Thomas Becnel and Catherine Brou.

The "BECNEL" surname originated with the early descendants of Thomas and Catherine. If you are a Becnel, or either of your parents were a Becnel, I probably have a good bit of your ancestry recorded. If not, I would like to add your data.

Did you find a name of an ancestor, but not the right data? I am very interested in any corrections or additions that you are willing to share.
