LYLE Family History

Recorded in many spellings as shown, this is an Anglo-French surname, but one of French origins, of which it has two. Whatever its origin, it was first introduced into England at or after the famous Norman Conquest of 1066, and could be topographical for someone who lived on an island. If so it is derived from the pre 7th century French word "isle", from the ultimate Latin "insula". The modern surname, found as Lisle, Liles, Lyal, Lyle, de Lisle, De L'Isle and de Lyle, is the result of the French definite article "le" becoming fused with "isle". Secondly the name can be locational from the French city of Lille, which also derives its name from the word "isle"...
