Appulyord is a name whose history is connected to the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the Appulyord family once 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.

Appulyord Early Origins



The surname Appulyord 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.

Appulyord Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Appulyord family name include Appleyard, Appleyeard, Appelyard, Apelyard and many more.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Appulyord surname or a spelling variation of the name include: 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.
