O'Boyele History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The Irish surname O'Boyele comes from the Irish Gaelic O Baoighill, possibly derived from the earlier Irish word "baigell," which meant "having profitable pledges."

O'Boyele Spelling Variations

Among the many spelling variations of the surname O'Boyele that are preserved in archival documents are Boyle, O'Boyle, Boghill, Hill, Boile, Baoghal, Baole and many more.

Migration of the O'Boyele family to the New World and Oceana

Ireland became inhospitable for many native Irish families in the 19th centuries. Poverty, lack of opportunities, high rents, and discrimination forced thousands to leave the island for North America. The largest exodus of Irish settlers occurred with the Great Potato Famine of the late 1840s. For these immigrants the journey to British North America and the United States was long and dangerous and many did not live to see the shores of those new lands. Those who did make it were essential to the development of what would become two of the wealthiest and most powerful nations of the world. These Irish immigrants were not only important for peopling the new settlements and cities, they also provided the manpower needed for the many industrial and agricultural projects so essential to these growing nations. Immigration and passenger lists have documented the arrival of various people bearing the name O'Boyele to North America: Benjamin Boyle who settled in New Hampshire in 1718; Christopher Boyle settled in Virginia in 1645; Bernard, Charles, Daniel, Dennis, Edward, Francis, Hugh, James, John, Joseph, Michael, Patrick, Richard, Robert, Thomas and William Boyle, all arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania between 1820 and 1860. In Newfoundland, Joanna Boyle was married in St. John's in 1832.
