Thanks to Geneteka and the group that has indexed the parish records of Jaminy, Podlasie, I have been able to go back several generations.
I have an ancestor, Pawel Sokolowski, born 1771, in the Jaminy region. His mother was named Marianna Jurgiel. Is anybody familiar with this name? It sounds a bit Lithuanian to me; I know the origin is related to the name for "George." I also see that the member of the Sejm for the Bialystock region has the same last name. But at this point, I don't see any more mention of this name..

Christina,

A quick search for Jurgiel etymology leads to

Quoting:

W staropolszczyźnie znane były formy Jerzy, Jura, Jurg (za pośrednictwem języka niemieckiego), na Kresach Wschodnich Jurij.
