The lineage of the name Appaletolm begins with the Anglo-Saxon tribes in Britain. It is a result of when they lived near an orchard or a homestead where apples were grown. The Old English word for orchard is ęppeltun, which is a compound word formed from ęppel, which means apple, and tun, which means enclosure. The surname may also be derived from residency near the various settlements called Appleton in Cheshire, Kent, and Yorkshire, among other places.

Appaletolm Early Origins



The surname Appaletolm was first found in Lancashire at Widness with Appleton, a township, in the parish and union of Prescot, hundred of West Derby. The estate of Widness with Appleton was once held by the family but was lost under tragic circumstances. "Appleton gave name to an ancient family, the last of whom left two children under the guardianship of one Hawarden, who was reported to have murdered them. The estate afterwards belonged to the Gellibrands, who succeeded the Hawardens." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Some of the first records of the name include John de Appelton who represented York in the parliament in the reign of Edward II and William Appleton who was sheriff of that city in the reign of James II. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 include: Thomas de Appelton in Oxfordshire; and Wydo de Appelton in Yorkshire. The Yorkshire Poll Tax Rolls of 1379 list Willelmus de Appilton. [3]CITATION[CLOSE]

Further north in Scotland, one of the first records there was Robert de Aplinden or Aplintoune in Annandale who forfeited his lands in the reign of Robert Bruce. Later Robert de Aplinton or Appylton had a charter of land in the burgh of Invemys from Robert II in 1378. [4]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Appaletolm were among those contributors: Richard Appleton settled in Virginia in 1622; and Richard Appleton settled in that same estate in 1635; Francis settled in Maryland in 1774; Mary Appleton settled in 1734.
