The ancestors of the Appalegath family lived among the Strathclyde-Briton people of the Scottish/English Borderlands. Appalegath is a name for someone who lived in Dumfries. The Appalegath 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 Appalegath family


The surname Appalegath 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.

Spelling variations are thus an extremely common occurrence in Medieval Scottish names. Appalegath has been spelled Aplegath, Aplegarth, Applegarth, Applegate and others.

Migration of the Appalegath family to the New World and Oceana


Such hard times forced many to leave their homeland in search of opportunity across the Atlantic. Many of these families settled along the east coast of North America in communities that would become the backbones of the young nations of the United States and Canada. The ancestors of many of these families have rediscovered their roots in the 20th century through the establishment of Clan societies and other patriotic 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..
