The first people to use the name Appalegarth were a family of Strathclyde- Britons who lived in the Scottish/English Borderlands. The name comes from when someone lived in Dumfries. The Appalegarth surname comes from the northern Middle English applegarth, meaning "apple orchard." The name may have been originally used for someone who lived near an orchard, or it may have been a habitational name from a place so named, of which there are examples in Cumbria and North and East Yorkshire, and in the county of Dumfries.

Appalegarth Early Origins



The surname Appalegarth was first found in Dumfriesshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Dhn Phris), a Southern area, bordering on England that today forms part of the Dumfries and Galloway Council Area, where they held a family seat at Applegarth, near Lockerbie.

The Great Migration



The North American colonies beckoned, with their ample land and opportunity as their freedom from the persecution suffered by so many Clan families back home. Many Scots even fought against England in the American War of Independence to gain this freedom. Recently, clan societies have allowed the ancestors of these brave Scottish settlers to rediscover their familial roots. Among them: Clement Applegate who settled in Virginia in 1654; John Applegate settled in San Francisco, California, in 1850; John Appleget arrived in San Francisco in 1852..
