Eppele History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: English, German


Eppele is one of the names that was brought to England in the wave of migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Eppele family name comes from the given name Hevel, which means evanescence. It is also possibly derived from an Old German word which means noble one. The surname Eppele was also a baptismal name meaning the son of Abel, and became a popular 13th century name meaning son.

Early Origins of the Eppele family


The surname Eppele was first found in the counties of Kent, Derbyshire and Essex. "Abell was also an Essex family, although branches spread into the counties of Kent and Derby." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Eppele Spelling Variations


The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Eppele has been recorded under many different variations, including Abell, Abel, Able, Habel, Abeel, Abelson, Abelle, Abele, Ablson, Ebelson, Abill, Abilson, Aball, Abeal, Eblson and many more.

Migration of the Eppele family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Eppeles were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America:

The Eppele Motto


The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Vive le Roi
Motto Translation: Long life to the King.
