Matthew Eckler The associated coat of arms for this name are recorded in J.B Rietstaps Armorial General. Illustrated by V & H.V Rolland's. This monumental work took 23 years to complete in which 85,000 shields of Arms are included in this works. This English, German, Swiss, Jewish and Dutch surname of EGLI was a topographic name for someone living at a corner. This could have been the corner of two streets in a town, or in the case of the German name, the corner of a field or an area of land. The name has many variant spellings which include ECKE, EGGE, ECKER, EGGERM, EGLER and AGHINI. Early records of the name mention William de Egghacombe, 1273, County Devon. Robert atte Egge of County Somerset, was documented during the reign of Edward III (1327-1377), and Isobel Edge appears in the same document. Henry del Egge of Withington, County Lancashire, was recorded in the Lay Subsidy Rolls in 1332, and Agnes del Egge of Yorkshire, was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379. Henry Rappit and Isabel Edge were married at St. James's, Clerkenwell, London in the year 1617. 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 gentler blood assumed surnames at this time, but it was not until the reign of Edward III (1327-1377) that it became common practice for all people. When the first immigrants from Europe went to America, the only names current in the new land were Indian names which did not appeal to Europeans vocally, and the Indian names did not influence the surnames or Christian names already possessed by the immigrants. Mostly the immigrant could not read or write and had little or no knowledge as to the proper spelling, and their names suffered at the hands of the government officials. The early town records are full of these mis-spelt names most of which gradually changed back to a more conventional spelling as education progressed.
