APLIN Family History

This interesting surname, with variant spellings Alpin, Applin, Aplin, and Appling derives from the diminutive form of the personal name Appol(l)ina. Appol(l)ina was a martyr at Alexandria, who among other tortures, had her teeth beaten out, consquently she is evoked against toothache, and her emblem is a forceps gripping a tooth. This popular girls' name continued to be recorded into the late 16th and early 17th Centuries - Apeline, daughter of John Morris, was christened in St. Peter's Church, Corhill, London in 1593.
