A family with the name Coriell (spelled Coryell by one branch) appears
in Piscataway, New Jersey, USA, in 1702. The progenitor, known only
from a cattle mark of that year, was Abraham. He had, apparently, four
sons: David (1704-1779), Samuel (d. 1760), Abraham, and Emanuel (d.
1748). Three of these sons married Dutch women (Samuel's wife is
unknown).
There is a Jewish family in Amsterdam, with roots in Spain, with
similar names, and which spelled the name Curiel. Has anyone
encountered evidence of a connection?

The double "ll" seems to be a [New Wrold?] "enhancement",
but the "Curiel" family was well-known >from the 1650's
in Sephardic Amsterdam:

These Sephardim families came, >from the late 1500's, to Amsterdam during the
80 year Hispanic-Netherlands war to set up the intercontinental shipping
trade scipping Spain/Portugal as an intermediary. As the Cripto-jews had had
a better chance in Portugal and the long haul shipping trade was more
concentrated there [IMHO], they came maily >from Portugal, spoke Portugese,
and had to be introduced to Sephardic ritual in Amsterdam.

Some of them were involved as early settlers of New Amsterdam, later known
as New York.
