Piles History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The Piles surname comes from the Middle English word "pile," meaning "stake," or "post," in turn from the Old English "pilum," meaning "javelin." As such, it was likely a topographic name for someone who lived near a landmark stake or post; or perhaps an occupational name for a maker of stakes.

Early Origins of the Piles family


The surname Piles was first found in Northumberland where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Pyle, some say at the time of the Norman Conquest of England in 1066 by Duke William of Normandy.
