Hoiles History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The Welsh name Hoiles derives from Old English "holh" meaning "hole." It is thought to have originally been a name for someone who lived in a round hollow or near a pit. As such, the surname Hoiles 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.

The surname Hoiles was first found in Monmouthshire (Welsh: Sir Fynwy), 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.

Hoiles Spelling Variations


Although there are not an extremely large number Welsh surnames, there are an inordinately large number of spelling variations of those surnames. This variety of spellings began almost immediately after the acceptance of surnames within Welsh society in the 15th century. As time progressed, these old Brythonic names were eventually were recorded in English. This process was problematic in that many of the highly inflected sounds of the native language of Wales could not be properly captured in English. Some families, however, did decide to modify their own names to indicate a branch loyalty within the family, a religious adherence, or even a patriotic affiliation. The name Hoiles has seen various spelling variations: Hoyle, Hoile and others.

The Welsh migration to North America in the late 19th and early 20th centuries contributed greatly to its rapid development. These migrants were in search of land, work, and freedom. Those Welsh families that survived the long ocean journey were critical to the development of new industries and factories, and to the quick settlement of land. They also added to an ever-growing rich cultural heritage.
