The origins of the Charple name come from when the Anglo-Saxon tribes ruled over Britain. The name Charple was originally derived from a family having lived in Sharples Hall near Bolton in the county of Lancashire. This habitation surname was originally derived from the Old English word scearp meaning sharp and laes meaning pasture. Therefore the original bearers of the surname lived in an area that was defined by it's steep pasture.

Charple Early Origins



The surname Charple was first found in Lancashire at Sharples or Sharples Hall, now a suburb of Bolton, a township of the civil and ecclesiastical parish of Bolton le Moors in the Salford hundred. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: Edward Sharples arrived in Virginia in 1623; John Sharples and his wife Jane and seven children arrived in Delaware in 1682; M. and T. Sharpless arrived in Baltimore in 1820..
