The surname Oppelt was first found in Holland, where the name became noted for its many branches in the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. The name was first recorded in Gelderland, (Guelders) an ancient province surrounding the town of Gelder. To the south of Friesland this province was originally in two parts north and south of the Rhine. In addition, the province is sub-divided into four towns, or quarters, Nijmegan, Arnhem, Zutphen and Roermond, each having unique rights and customs. Apeldoorn is a city of note. In their later history the surname became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into this most influential family.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Appledorn, vane Appeldorn, Apeldorn, van Apeldorn, Apeldorne, van Apeldorne, van Apeldoorn, Apeldoorn, van Apeldoorne, Apeldoorne, Apelthorn, van Apelthorn, Apeltorn, van Apeltorn, van Appeltorn, Appeltorn, van Appelthorn, van Apeltern and many more.
