The family name Westall has been established in Europe for nearly 100 years. Records dating back to 1482 suggest there was a contingency of Westall's in the county of Cornwall. During the time of the British Empire the name spread with the colonies to areas of America, Asia, India and Australia.
World wide there are approximately 73251 people with this name. The 1911 census carried out by H.M. Treasury for the United Kingdom shows the largest number of Westall's in the county of Wiltshire. A late 20th century Westall was noted as a keen drinker after police allegedly threw him out of no less than five watering holes in a single evening. A tarnished past is clear, particularly around the year 1871 when Barry Westall stole a vase and was sentenced to jail. 121
