Applegate Family Crest

Applegate Family CrestThe English surname Applegate, chiefly found in northern parts of England, is a variant of Applegarth, in which the less familiar final element has been assimilated to the northern Middle English word gate ‘road’ or to modern English gate. The Name is a topographic name from northern Middle English applegarth ‘apple orchard’ (Old Norse apaldr ‘apple tree’ + gar{dh}r ‘enclosure’), or a habitational name from a place so named, of which there are examples in Cumbria and North and East Yorkshire, as well as in the county of Dumfries, Scotland. A notable bearer of the name is the British army general Dick Applegate.
