The name Oriole reached England in the great wave of migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Oriole family lived in Kent. Their name, however, is a reference to Roisel, France, the family's place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066.

The surname Oriole was first found in Kent, where they held a family seat from very early times, and where they were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Sound was what guided spelling in the Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Oriole family name include Royle, Royal, Royell, Royl, Roille, Riall, Ryle, Ryall, O'Riall and many more.

To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Oriole family to immigrate North America: Roger Royal, who settled in Virginia in 1622; Joseph Royall, who settled in Virginia in 1623; William Royal, who settled in Salem Massachusetts in 1629.
