Many pioneers bearing the name of Bell were in the provinces of New England as early as 1643, in New Jersey before 1680, and in Pennsylvania about 1682. To Virginia several of the name came from Scotland between 1642 and 1720. Most of these emigrants were from Edinburgh , Linlithgow, Jedburg, Paisley and Glasgow in Scotland ; some from northern England and Southern Ireland and others from the counties Londonderry and Antrim in Northern Ireland .
