BAILES Family History

This interesting surname is of Old French origin, introduced into Britain after the Norman Conquest of 1066, and is either a topographical name for someone who lived by a wall of the outer court of a feudal castle, or a metonymic occupational name for a guardian of the courts or bailey, and derives from the Middle English, Old French "bail(e)" meaning the wall of the outer court of a feudal castle. Early recordings include: Eudo del Bayle in the 1301 Subsidy Rolls of Yorkshire, and John Bayl, in the 1382 Feet of Fines of Sussex.
