There are so many Giles'! I am researching my family tree: we are from Newport, in South Wales. My Grandfather was Alfred Giles, born in Newport circa 1919 to Ellen Launders and George Giles. Alfred married into the Challingsworth family who were originally from Kingswinford. Any connections out there??
Im doing research on my fiancées family for a scrap book, he is from Mexico and his mothers last name is Giles, any idea how it ended up in Mexico? I know he has Spanish ancestry as well as French.
Lucy, my surname is Giles and my father is from Argentina. So I have been wondering the same thing! My fathers' father was born in Argentina also, and his mother in Spain. (Unsure of her maiden name).
My mother was Wanda Lee Giles. Her sister was Anita Giles. They were born and raised in Illinois. Later in her life Anita Giles moved to North Carolina (I was told). Does anyone happen to have known either one of them? Tracing their family tree has been very difficult.
Hi all. I'm from the Gileses of County Kerry Ireland. Anyone got info about how the heck we got to County Kerry? I think we've been there since at least late 1700s and possibly as far back as mid 1600s
Does anyone know of a Harold Ernest Giles (nickname Mick)who was a coal porter back in the early 1900's in St Annes Parish (Limehouse)London. Although he married my grandmother 1910 I cannot trace him at all- no birth records etc!
Got a lucky break - now tracking across to Hastings....
Quite interesting. However, its hard to track down my whole family because my father immigrated from England to Indonesia.
Hi Ashleigh! I am Ashleigh Giles from Australia. Funny to think there is someone out there with the exact same name :)

hi shirley my giles family where in keighley leeds bradford areas
Members of my family have researched the Giles surname, and found that Gilles d'Argenten (Argenten is a town near Le Mans in France), was one of William the Conqueror's knights at the Norman conquest in 1066. He was rewarded by King William for his services by being granted the Manor of Wymondley in Hertfordshire. A tradition was that the Lord of this manor would present the first cup of wine to the monarch at the coronation banquet. His family crest therefore showed a cup or chalice with 3 'Gilly flowers' and the motto 'Perficiam'. Queen Victoria discontinued the coronation banquet. Some years ago I inherited a family signet ring bearing this (very worn) crest and motto, but proving a link back to Gilles d'Argenten has proven to be nigh impossible.
That's my famly crest as well! are you related to the Giles'es of Devon?
Will (Wiliam) Giles
I am Keith Giles cousin and am pretty sure we had relatives in Devon somewhere along the line, hence it would be good to know more about your similar crest - email@example.com
