The Strathclyde-Briton people of ancient Scotland were the first to use the name Boayle. The Boayle family lived in Lanarkshire. The Boayle surname is a habitational name, taken on from the place name Arbuckle (or Arnbuckle), in the parish of Airdrie, Lanarkshire. The Gaelic name for the place was earrann buachaille, meaning the "herdsman's portion" (of land).

Early Origins of the Boayle family


The surname Boayle was first found in Lanarkshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Lannraig) a former county in the central Strathclyde region of Scotland, now divided into the Council Areas of North Lanarkshire, South Lanarkshire, and the City of Glasgow. John Arnbuckle was recorded as a witness in Irvine in 1499, and later John Arbuckle purchased a lot of land in the city of Glasgow in the year 1511. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The ancestors of all of these families have recently been able to rediscover their roots through Clan societies and other Scottish organizations.
