The origins of the Appletwait name come from when the Anglo-Saxon tribes ruled over Britain. The name Appletwait was originally derived from a family having lived in the township of Applethwaite, which was in the parish of Windermere in Westmorland (now part of Cumbria). There were also places with this name in Cumberland and in Suffolk, where the first instances of the surname Appletwait were found. In Old English, applethwaite meant an apple orchard or an area of land cleared for growing apples.

Appletwait Early Origins



The surname Appletwait was first found in the county of Suffolk in south eastern England. The Applethwaites were found in Suffolk from very ancient times and sustained the Norman Conquest in 1066, retaining their lands and estates.

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: Henry Apllewhate who arrived in Virginia in 1713; Thomas Applewhite who arrived in Maryland in 1676; Henry Applewhaite who arrived in Virginia in 1670.
