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.
