Corles is a name whose history is entwined with the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It was a name for a person who was believed to be free from care or unconcerned. The nickname is derived from the Old English word carleas, which referred to the personal characteristics of the bearer.

Early Origins of the Corles family


The surname Corles was first found in Gloucestershire, but some of the family were found in Lancashire at Welsh Whittle in early times. "In that of Edward III., Sir William Careles held the manor, so called, of Walshwittell. " [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Corles family to the New World and Oceana


To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Corles family emigrate to North America: Andrew Carelesse, who settled in Virginia in 1650; Joane Carelesse, who arrived in Virginia in 1653; Thomas Careless, who arrived in Virginia in 1737.
