Aspinyle is a name of ancient Anglo-Saxon
origin and comes from a family once having lived in the settlement of Aspinwall,
which was in the parish of Aughton in Lancashire
county. The name Aspinwall
literally means the aspen-well,
referring to a well near a grove of aspen trees.
Early Origins of the Aspinyle family
The surname Aspinyle was first found in Lancashire
where they held a family seat
for many centuries, and where, at an early time, probably well before the Norman Conquest
in 1066, they founded the town of Aspinall in that county.

Migration of the Aspinyle family to the New World and Oceana
For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England
made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Aspinyle or a variant listed above: Edward Aspinwall, who arrived in Salem, MA in 1630; William Aspinwall, his wife Elisabeth and their daughter Mary Aspinwall, who came to Charlestown, MA in 1630.
