Appalegate History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Appalegate was first used as a surname in the Scottish/English Borderlands by the Strathclyde-Briton. The first Appalegate family lived in Dumfries. The Appalegate 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.

Early Origins of the Appalegate family


The surname Appalegate was first found in Dumfriesshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Dhùn 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.

Migration of the Appalegate family to the New World and Oceana


Many Scots were left with few options other than to leave their homeland for the colonies across the Atlantic. Some of these families fought to defend their newfound freedom in the American War of Independence. Others went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. The ancestors of all of these families have recently been able to rediscover their roots through Clan societies and other Scottish organizations. 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..
