An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The Pyle 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.

Pyle Early Origins



The surname Pyle 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.
