Where did the English Pyle family come from? What is the English Pyle family crest and coat of arms? When did the Pyle family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Pyle family history?The Pyle surname comes from the Middle English word "pile," meaning "stake," or "post," in turn from the Old English "pilum," meaning "javelin." As such, it was likely a topographic name for someone who lived near a landmark stake or post; or perhaps an occupational name for a maker of stakes.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Pyle, Pile, Pyll, Pyles, Pylie, Pilie, Pill and others.
First found in Northumberland where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Pyle, some say at the time of the Norman Conquest of England in 1066 by Duke William of Normandy.
