The name Epulyeart first arose amongst the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is derived from their having lived near an orchard, or in the settlement of Appleyard in Yorkshire. In either case, the name is ultimately derived from the Old English words ęppel, meaning apple, and geard, meaning enclosure.

Epulyeart Early Origins



The surname Epulyeart was first found in the counties of Yorkshire and Norfolk, where they held a family seat from ancient times. They retained their estates after the Norman invasion in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Epulyeart arrived in North America very early: Elizabeth Appleyard who settled in Rappahannock, Virginia in 1729; Thomas Appleyard settled in Virginia in 1663; David Appleyard settled in New York state in 1820.
