Where did the English Pyles family come from? What is the English Pyles family crest and coat of arms? When did the Pyles family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Pyles family history?

The Pyles 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.
