An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2018


The Strathclyde-Briton people of ancient Scotland were the first to use the name Aplebee. The Aplebee family lived in various places so named in England and Scotland. Appleby is derived from the old Norse apall, or "apple" combined with byr, meaning "farm."

Aplebee Early Origins



The surname Aplebee was first found in Westmorland, where they held a family seat as Lords of the manor of Appleby from about the year 1250, which later became the county town of Appleby. This town was frequently sacked and plundered and was a favorite target of raids north of the border.
