Pirkle Early Origins



The surname Pirkle was first found in West Lothian, where they held a family seat. It is most likely that this name was one of the Norman families which joined the train of the Earl of Huntingdon in his move north to become King David of Scotland, they taking the surname from the lands of Parkley. King David granted much land in the district to his disgruntled Norman friends from the south.
