The name Aisles first arose amongst the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is derived from their having lived on an island. The surname Aisles is derived from the Old French word isle, which means island and has become the modern French word Óle. The surname Aisles belongs to the class of topographic surnames, which were given to people who resided near physical features such as hills, streams, churches, or types of trees. However, the name Aisles may also be a patronymic surname derived from the Anglo-Saxon personal names ∆l or ∆thel.

Aisles Early Origins



The surname Aisles was first found in Somerset where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Aisles arrived in North America very early: John Eels who purchased land in New England in 1620. William Eels landed in Virginia in 1739. George Eyles made his home in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1754. Other Eyles family members settled in Pennsylvania in later years..
