Ampple is a name that was carried to England in the great wave of migration from Normandy following 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.

Ampple Early Origins



The surname Ampple 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.

Ampple Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Ampple has been recorded under many different variations, including Ambler, Ambeller, Amblie, Anbler, Amble, Amblor and others.

The Great Migration



To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Ampples were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America: Martha Ambler who settled in Virginia in 1721; John Ambler settled in Virginia in 1721; Benjamin in New York State, in 1774; with his wife, Mary, son John, and Ann, his daughter..
