The ancestors of the name Appeleyeerd date back to the days of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from their residence near an orchard, or in the settlement of Appleyard in Yorkshire. In either case, the name is ultimately derived from the Old English words ppel, meaning apple, and geard, meaning enclosure.

Appeleyeerd Early Origins



The surname Appeleyeerd was first found in the counties of Yorkshire and Norfolk, where they held a family seat from ancient times. They retained their estates after the Norman invasion in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Appeleyeerds to arrive on North American shores: Elizabeth Appleyard who settled in Rappahannock, Virginia in 1729; Thomas Appleyard settled in Virginia in 1663; David Appleyard settled in New York state in 1820.
