The name Ailes is rooted in the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It was a name for someone who was a person with a troublesome temperament. Further research revealed that the name is derived from the Old English word Aegel referring to someone who had an argumentative disposition.

Ailes Early Origins



The surname Ailes was first found in Kent where they held a family seat from early times as Lords of the manor of Aylesford at the time of the Norman Conquest of England by Duke William of Normandy in 1066 A.D. At the time of the taking of the Domesday Book Survey in 1086, Aylesford was reported as the King's land with a mill. This picturesque village is the site of the Battle where the Saxon Commanders, Hengist and Horsa, defeated the British in 455 A.D.

Many variations of the name Ailes have been found, including Ailes, Ayles, Ailles, Aylles and others.

The Great Migration



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Ailess to arrive on North American shores:
