It is very interesting that your surname is Barrall, but you are searching for the name of Barrell.
My wife's single name is Barrall & I know From her granfather's wedding certificate that her great grandfather was George Barrall,
On the 1881 census there were only 2 George Barralls one in Yorkshire & one in St Pancreas, London. I opted for the London George Barrall were was born in Rougham, Suffolk.
The interesting thing is his was christened George Barrell on 27th September 1840. I only found this out because I could find no other Barralls in Rougham on the census, but as soon as I changed the name up they all came. I have a bit more information if you are interested.
George Barrall at the time of the census was working as a groom in a grand house at the time and perhaps he thought Barrall had a little exclusivity about it.
Just to complicate the issue a little more John Barrell, George's father also appears on some documents as Barrel.
Hope this is a help.
