The name Apletthwate is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is a product of when the family lived in the township of Applethwaite, which was in the parish of Windermere in Westmorland (now part of Cumbria). There were also places with this name in Cumberland and in Suffolk, where the first instances of the surname Apletthwate were found. In Old English, applethwaite meant an apple orchard or an area of land cleared for growing apples.

Apletthwate Early Origins



The surname Apletthwate was first found in the county of Suffolk in south eastern England. The Applethwaites were found in Suffolk from very ancient times and sustained the Norman Conquest in 1066, retaining their lands and estates.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Apletthwates to arrive in North America: Henry Apllewhate who arrived in Virginia in 1713; Thomas Applewhite who arrived in Maryland in 1676; Henry Applewhaite who arrived in Virginia in 1670.
