Origins Available: English, German


The Noles name has descended through the generations from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name comes from having lived in the area that was referred to as the knoll. This surname was originally derived from the Old English word cnolle which means one who lived at the top of the hill or the summit. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Noles were among those contributors:

Noles Settlers in United States in the 17th Century

  • Eliz Noles, who landed in Virginia in 1655

Noles Settlers in New Zealand in the 19th Century

  • William Noles arrived in Wellington, New Zealand aboard the ship "Alma" in 1857
