An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The name Ample was brought to England in the wave of migration that followed the Norman Conquest of 1066. It is a name for a person employed as an enameller, and derives from the Anglo-Norman-French amayler, of the same meaning. It is also possible that the name refers to one who is employed in a profession which involves horses, as the Old English ambler means walker, and is a technical word for the slowest gait of a horse.

Ample Early Origins



The surname Ample was first found in the counties of Suffolk where they settled soon after the Norman Conquest. Their ancient estates were in Amblie, in Calvados in Normandy.

The Great Migration



In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Amples to arrive on North American shores:
