The origins of the Pepler name come from when the Anglo-Saxon tribes ruled over Britain. The name Pepler was originally derived from a family having lived in Peplow a small location found in the county of Shropshire. The surname Pepler was originally derived from the Old English word pyppel which referred to those individuals who lived on the pepple hill.

Pepler Early Origins



The surname Pepler was first found in Shropshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Peplow, originally pre-Conquest named Papelau, and conjecturally they are descended from the holder of the manor at the time of the taking of the Domesday Book in 1086, Ralph de Mortimer, who held the manor from Earl Roger. A new Peplow Hall was built in Georgian times.

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants:
