The Oxford English Dictionary of Family Names in Britain and Ireland describes MABLE as a variant of the surname MABLEY, the earliest known ocurrence of which is Rogerus filius Mabilie (1130 AD in the Pipe Rolls, Northamptonshire, England). The MABLEY surname is thought to be of Norman origin, possibly related to the Old French name Mabile. (See Space: Origins of the Mabile Surname.)

Early examples of the MABLE form include: Johanne filio Mable (in a 1379 AD poll tax for Leicestershire); John Mabyll (in 1430 AD patent rolls for Essex); and Nicholas Mable (in 1457-8 AD Nottingham Borough Records for Sneinton).

Y-DNA studies have shown that MAPLEY/MABLEY families of English origin are related to American MAPLE families. These families share a nearest common patrilineal ancestor who born roughly around 1400-1500 AD. The MAPLE/MAPLEY/MABLE/MABLEY Surname Project at Family Tree DNA ( https://www.familytreedna.com/groups/maple-surname-dna-project/about/background ) is looking for MABLE males to participate in this study.
