An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The Humpil surname is derived from the Middle English/Old French word "humble" meaning "lowly." It is surmised that the name may have originally been a nickname for a meek person, in the days before surnames were used.

Humpil Early Origins



The surname Humpil was first found in Durham, in Northern England where the first on record was Adam Homel, listed in 1242 in the Assize Rolls for that county. Although there was manor of West Humble, far south of this, in Surrey.

Humpil Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Humpil has been recorded under many different variations, including Humble, Hummill, Humbill and others.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Humpil or a variant listed above: Roger Humble, who came to Virginia in 1637; John Humble, who came to Maryland in 1647; Jno Humble, who came to Virginia in 1668; Elizabeth Humble, a bonded passenger who settled in America in 1741.
