The ancestors of the name Charpliss date back to the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the Charpliss family 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.

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks.

Sharpless arrived in Baltimore in 1820..
