The ancestors of the name Ernle date back to the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the Ernle family lived in the village of Ernle, in the county of Sussex.

Ernle Early Origins



The surname Ernle 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



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. 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. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Ernle or a variant listed above: Alexander Ernley arrived in Philadelphia in 1820.
