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


The distinguished surname Aple is derived from the Middle English "appel," meaning "apple." The name may have been originally borne by a grower or seller of apples, or by someone living near an apple tree. Alternatively, the name may have been first bestowed as a nickname on someone with bright red cheeks.

Aple Early Origins



The surname Aple was first found in various counties and shires during the reign of King Edward III, between 1327 and 1377. The first known bearer of the name was Nicholas Appelman, who was listed in the Close Rolls (1204-1227)

Aple Spelling Variations



Endless spelling variations are a prevailing characteristic of Norman surnames. Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules, and the introduction of Norman French added an unfamiliar ingredient to the English linguistic stew. French and Latin, the languages of the court, also influenced spellings. Finally, Medieval scribes generally spelled words according to how they sounded, so one person was often referred to by different spellings in different documents. The name has been spelled Apple, Appel, Appleman, Appelman and others.

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious persecution within England at the time, many English families left for the various British colonies abroad. The voyage was extremely difficult, though, and the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving. But for those who made it, the trip was most often worth it. Many of the families who arrived went on to make valuable contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families reveals a number of immigrants bearing the name Aple or a variant listed above:
