Liles Genealogy Begins To Get Fuzzy In The Mid 1600's

Family Crest (Sure!!) The name Lyle is of Norman French origin, meaning "the island" - L'ile.

We do not have a "Family Crest" so we borrowed on for our page!

The Normans were not really French but were Scandinavian. The French had given them lands in France, "Normandy", basically to stop them being a pest with their continual raiding and in hopes they would settle. In 1066 the Normans invaded and conquered England.

Not only did the Normans invade England, but they penetrated Scotland as well, founding many of the noble families of Scotland. King Robert the Bruce who successfully fought off an English army at Bannockburn established the independent Scottish state was of Norman descent. So were the Stewarts, future kings of Scotland, and the Lyles. They had a castle at Stoneypath, near the village of Garvald in East Lothian, not far from Edinburgh, the royal capital.

The Lyles seem to have fallen from favor in the 1600's and lost their lands and possibly their rank. There are concentrations of Lyles in and around Edinburgh and Midlothian, and also in the Strathclyde area near Glasgow. The Lyles appear to be Lowland Scots rather than Highlanders.

Amaziah Liles was born out of wedlock in 1812 in North Carolina. His mother was a saloon girl and I suppose he took her name.
He moved to White Co., Arkansas with the Russell Price family sometime between 1832-1836. In 1837, he married Russell's daughter, Jane Price. Amaziah died in 1866.
