Another spelling of Myles/Miles and Myalls

I have Albert Myalls born Aug 24, 1838 in East Stour Dorset England.
His wife is Elizabeth Vallis who was born 1848 in Coomb's Cove Newfoundland and the daughter of Richard Vallis and Maia Tibbo.
Albert and Elizabeth were married Sept 27, 1869.
They had 7 children born in Coomb's Cove, south of Boxey Harbour Newfoundland.
Their children were:
Maria Jane born Apr 16 1871
Margaret Ann born May 4 1874
John Henry born 1876
Albert born Jan 1879
Emily born Sept 1882
Amelia Frances born Jan 18 1887
William Quinton born Aug 1893

I have photos of the headstones for the parents.
Albert (father) died Jun 2 1930 in Coombs Cove
Elizabeth (mother) died Aug 25 1913 in Coombs Cove.
In both instances the surnames were spelled Myalls on the headstones.
My wife has a relative in her late 90s who recalls Albert always insisted the proper spelling was Myalls and he would get upset whenever anybody misspelled his surname.
