The lineage of the name Alles begins with the Anglo-Saxon tribes in Britain. It is a result of when they lived on an island. The surname Alles is derived from the Old French word isle, which means island and has become the modern French word Óle. The surname Alles 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 Alles may also be a patronymic surname derived from the Anglo-Saxon personal names ∆l or ∆thel.

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Alles were among those contributors:
