The origins of the Ackle name come from when the Anglo-Saxon tribes ruled over Britain. The name Ackle was originally derived from a family having lived in a clearing surrounded by oak trees. The surname Ackle literally means oak-meadow. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Mills, A.D., Dictionary of English Place-Names. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-19-869156-4)
The surname Ackle is associated with the village of Acle in Norfolk, and the village of Akeley in Buckinghamshire.

Ackle Early Origins



The surname Ackle was first found in Norfolk or Buckinghamshire. Of the two locations, Akeley (Akely) in Buckinghamshire seems to be the strongest place of origin for the surname. Located "in the union, hundred, and county of Buckingham, 2 miles (N. by E.) from the town of Buckingham," [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
Akeley has remained small over the years as by the late 1800s, it only had a population of 362. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
However, the parish dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 when it was first listed as Achelei. [3]CITATION[CLOSE]

Some of the family were found in Whitworth, Durham in early years. "According to the Boldon book, this manor was held by Thomas de Acley, by the service of a quarter of a knight's fee." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: Henry Ackerly, who sailed to New Haven, Connecticut in 1640. Also, Nicholas Acly who arrived in Connecticut in 1655; William Ackley in Virginia in 1664.
