The annals of Scottish history reveal that Peepall was first used as a name by ancestors of the Pictish tribe of ancient Scotland. The Peepall family lived in the town of Peebles in the county of the same name. The name is occasionally derived from residence in the lands called Peebles near St. Vigeans in the county of Angus.

Peepall Early Origins



The surname Peepall was first found in Peeblesshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd nam Płballan), former county in South-central Scotland, in the present day Scottish Borders Council Area, where they held a family seat from early times and their first records appeared on the early census rolls taken by the early Kings of Scotland to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

The Great Migration



In those unstable times, many had no choice but to leave their beloved homelands. Sickness and poverty hounded travelers to North America, but those who made it were welcomed with land and opportunity. These settlers gave the young nations of Canada and the United States a strong backbone as they stood up for their beliefs as United Empire Loyalists and in the American War of Independence. In this century, the ancestors of these brave Scots have begun to recover their illustrious heritage through Clan societies and other heritage organizations. Early passenger and immigration lists reveal many Scottish settlers bearing the name Peepall: Anne, Annabella, John, Margaret, Mary and Sarah Peebbes all arrived in New York State in 1804; Hugh Peebles arrived in Nova Scotia in 1774; James Peeples settled in Philadelphia in 1869.
