DURRELL Tradition says that Philip Durrell came from the Island of Guernsey. He had a grant of fifty acres in Exeter, 21 Feb. 1697/8, which he conveyed to his son, Joseph, 20 Dec. 1738, HISTORY OF DURHAM 167 and Joseph sold it to Thomas Young, 24 Jan. 1740/1, In this deed he is called Philip Duda of Arundel. The grant was "near Piscassic at Lamperel River." Nov. i, 1700, Philip Deudy of Exeter, planter, for ten pounds, sold to William Ardell a "certain tract of land lying and being in Exeter" on the south side of the mast way, near Mr. Ardell's saw mill, "near the house that was formerly Teague Daniells." At this time he removed to Arundel, now Kennebunkport, Me. Aug 13, 1703 his family were carried off by Indians and he went back to Exeter. His wife and his infant son were allowed to come back from Piquawket (Fryeburg, Me.) to Saco fort, an Indian carrying the infant. Philip Durrell, or Duda, was a soldier in a garrison at Exeter, 26 Oct. 1696. He was one of a scouting party for two days under Capt. Nicholas Oilman of Exeter, July 5, 1710. He returned to Kennebunkport in 17 14 and in 1723 had the same lot laid out to him that he was in possession of when his family were carried into captivity by the Indians. His family were again captured in 1726, and his wife was killed. He bought 100 acres in Arundel in 1727 and sold the same to his son, Benjamin, in 1732. He is called in old records Duda, Dudey, Doody, Deudy and Durrell. The last seems to have been the original surname, to which his descendants in Maine adhered, and to which the descendants of his son, Joseph, in Durham and vicinity have returned.
