The ancient history of the Stoyles name begins with the ancient Anglo-Saxon
tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the family resided in the Cheshire
area, some say before the Norman invasion
, in 1066.
Early Origins of the Stoyles family
The surname Stoyles was first found in Bedfordshire
(Old English: Bedanfordscir), located in Southeast-central England
, formerly part of the Anglo-Saxon
kingdom of Mercia, where the family held a family seat
in early times. The earliest known bearer of the name was Reginald atte
Stighel, who was recorded in the Assize Rolls of 1227. The Stoyles family branched to other counties at an early date, also appearing in Somerset
, where William de Stile and Osmund Atthe Stihele were living in 1229 and 1234 respectively, as well as in Sussex
, where William ate Stegel was recorded in the Subsidy Rolls

Stoyles Spelling Variations
Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon
surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations
. Changes in Anglo-Saxon
names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Stoyles include Stiles, Styals, Styles, Style, Stoyle, Steggle, Steagall, Steggal and many more.
