The name Eylers has a long Anglo-Saxon heritage. The name comes from when a family lived on an island. The surname Eylers is derived from the Old French word isle, which means island and has become the modern French word Óle. The surname Eylers belongs to the class of topographic surnames, which were given to people who resided near physical features such as hills, streams, churches, or types of trees. However, the name Eylers may also be a patronymic surname derived from the Anglo-Saxon personal names ∆l or ∆thel.

Eylers Early Origins



The surname Eylers was first found in Somerset where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Eylers, or a variant listed above:
