were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Aspyle family name include Aspall, Aspell, Asphal, Aspal, Asspall, Aspill and many more.

Migration of the Aspyle family to the New World and Oceana
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 Aspyle surname or a spelling variation of the name include: John and James Aspill, who sailed to Delaware in 1785.
