The Ernelle name has descended through the generations from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name comes from having lived in the village of Ernle, in the county of Sussex.

Ernelle Early Origins



The surname Ernelle was first found in Sussex at West Wittering, a parish, in the union of West Hampnett, hundred of Manhood, rape of Chichester. "Wittering was the occasional residence of the bishops of Chichester from the thirteenth to the sixteenth century, when the episcopal palace, now called Cakeham Manor Place, became the property of the Ernley family; the ancient mansion has partly disappeared, and the remainder has been converted into a farmhouse."

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Ernelle were among those contributors: Alexander Ernley arrived in Philadelphia in 1820.
