This surname SARLES was of the baptismal group of surnames meaning 'the son of Sarle'. It was found as a personal name in County Cambridge in 1273, and it still flourishes as a surname there today. The name was originally derived from the Old French word 'sorli' and was brought into England in the wake of the Norman Invasion of 1066. Sarlo Iuuenis 1091-3 was recorded in London and appears to be the first of the name on record. Other records of the name mention Sarle Tinctor, 1273, County Huntingdonshire. Matilda Sarle was documented in Cambridge in the same year. Edward Sarel and Mary Philcox were married at St. George's, Hanover Square, London in 1788. The name has many variant spellings which include Sarel, Sarl, Sarrell and Sarll. Between the 11th and 15th centuries it became customary for surnames to be assumed in Europe, but they were not commonplace in England or Scotland before the Norman Conquest of 1066. Those of gentle blood assumed surnames at this time, but it was not until the reign of Edward II (1307-1327) that it became common practice for all people. Hereditary surnames were originally imported from France into England during the Norman Conquest of 1066. In the two centuries or so after the Conquest surnames were acquired by most families of major landholders, and many landed families of lesser importance. There appears to have been a constant trickle of migration into Britain between about the years 1200 and 150O, mostly from France and the Low Countries, with a small number of migrants from Scandinavia, Germany, Italy and the Iberian peninsular, and occasional individuals from further afield. During this period groups of aliens settled in this country as for example, the Germans who from the late 15th century onwards settled in Cumbria to work the metal mines. Immigration during this time had only a small effect on the body of surnames used in Britain. In many cases, the surnames of immigrants were thoroughly Anglicised. The late sixteenth century saw the arrival, mostly in London and the south-coast ports of large numbers of people fleeing from the war regions of France.
