"PAUL, PAULL. This surname is one of considerable antiquity in the parish of Daviot, and occurs in the parish of Fintry in 1654. It is also found in the Lothians and in Fife, where it is considered "by family tradition a Flemish name" (Sc. Ant., rv, p. 114), but is not necessarily so. Robert Paul was member of council of the burgh of Stirling in 1528 (SBR., p. 276), Patrick Paule, witness at Tuliboill, 1546 (Rottok, 6), and Janet Paule is recorded in Edinburgh in 1659 (Edinb. Marr.). Alexander Paul!, mercator in Elgine, 1696 ( (Inauis., 8769). The Gaelic forms are Pdl (classical) and Pdl (common speech), whence Poison and Macphail. The name is Latin Paulas, from paulus, little. Pawll 1688. "(The surnames of Scotland. George Fraser Black, 1866-1948)
