The origins of the Appleyerd name lie with England's ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It comes from when the family lived near an orchard, or in the settlement of Appleyard in Yorkshire. In either case, the name is ultimately derived from the Old English words ęppel, meaning apple, and geard, meaning enclosure.

Appleyerd Early Origins



The surname Appleyerd 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



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Appleyerd family emigrate to North America: 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.
