The Popplehale surname is a habitational (local) name taken on from any of several place names in West Yorkshire. These place names derive from the Old English words "popel," which is thought to have meant "pebble," and "wella" which meant a "spring," or "stream."

Early Origins of the Popplehale family


The surname Popplehale was first found in Yorkshire at either Upper Poppleton or Nether Poppleton, villages and civil parishes that date back to Saxon times. The first record of the place name was found in c. 972 when it was listed as Popeltune. By the time of the Domesday Book of 1086, the place was listed as Popletone. At that time, the villages and lands were given by Osbern De Arches to the Abbot of St Mary's in York. The name is derived from popel (pebble) and tun (hamlet, farm), and means "farmstead on pebbly soil." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 14th century when John of Popplewell held estates in that shire in 1316. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
