Ryles History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
Ryles is one of the many new names that came to England following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Ryles family lived in Kent. Their name, however, is a reference to Roisel, France. John Roiale, Normandy was registered in 1180-1195 (Magni Rotuli Scaccarii Normanniae) 
The first records of the family was as a "personal name Galfrid Roille in Rotuli de Oblatis et Finibus, King John." 
Early Origins of the Ryles family
The surname Ryles was first found in the Close Rolls where Bernard de Royl was listed in 1230. Later, William de Roille was found in the Assize Rolls for Cheshire in 1290. 
One source presumes that family is from "Ryle, in the manor of Etchells, in the parish of Northendon, Cheshire"  and the last roll entry may agree.
An early East Cheshire roll has the following entry: "Sir Nicholas de Eton ... concedes to Sir William de Baggylegh, knt. ... one hamlet... in the vill of Echeles, which is called Ruyhul ... which Richard de Ruyhul held ... c. 1318." 
This source goes on "most of the Cheshire and Lancashire Royles and Ryles are sprung from this spot, including the late Bishop of Liverpool. In the form of Royle the surname has ramified very strongly."  "Royle is the name of an ancient mansion in Whalley parish, [Lancashire]."

Ryles Spelling Variations
Anglo-Norman names are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. When the Normans became the ruling people of England in the 11th century, they introduced a new language into a society where the main languages of Old and later Middle English had no definite spelling rules. These languages were more often spoken than written, so they blended freely with one another. Contributing to this mixing of tongues was the fact that medieval scribes spelled words according to sound, ensuring that a person's name would appear differently in nearly every document in which it was recorded. The name has been spelled Royle, Royal, Royell, Royl, Roille, Riall, Ryle, Ryall, O'Riall and many more.

For many English families, the political and religious disarray that plagued their homeland made the frontiers of the New World an attractive prospect. Thousands migrated, aboard cramped disease-ridden ships. They arrived sick, poor, and hungry, but were welcomed in many cases with far greater opportunity than at home in England. Many of these hardy settlers went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Among early immigrants bearing the name Ryles or a variant listed above were:
