The name Preble may or may not predate the Norman invasion of Britain in 1066. It has been suggested that this name is derived from the name of a French town of Preville.

Preble Early Origins



The surname Preble was first found in Kent; however early records of the name are scarce. Although they are probably not related, it is interesting to note that there is a record of a John Pridel in 1320 in the "Petre Documents."
