Early Origins of the Moile family
The surname Moile was first found in Cornwall
where the surname is "not from mule, as the family appear to have imagined when they assumed the arms, 'Gules, a moyle or mule passant argent;' but from a place in or contiguous to the parish of St. Minovor. " CITATION[CLOSE]
