The ancestors of the bearers of the Abbulyearde family name are thought have lived in ancient Anglo-Saxon England. They were first found near an orchard, or in the settlement of Appleyard in Yorkshire. In either case, the name is ultimately derived from the Old English words ęppel, meaning apple, and geard, meaning enclosure.

Abbulyearde Early Origins



The surname Abbulyearde was first found in the counties of Yorkshire and Norfolk, where they held a family seat from ancient times. They retained their estates after the Norman invasion in 1066 A.D.

Abbulyearde Spelling Variations



Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Abbulyearde include Appleyard, Appleyeard, Appelyard, Apelyard and many more.

The Great Migration



Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Abbulyearde or a variant listed above: Elizabeth Appleyard who settled in Rappahannock, Virginia in 1729; Thomas Appleyard settled in Virginia in 1663; David Appleyard settled in New York state in 1820.
