AUDLEY Family History

This interesting name is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and is a locational surname deriving from the place called "Audley" near Lichfield in Staffordshire. The placename is recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as "Aldidelege", and in the Staffordshire Pipe Rolls of 1182 as "Aldithelega". The name means "Ealdgith's glade", derived from the Old English pre 7th Century female personal name "Ealdgith", composed of the elements "eald", old, and "gyth", battle, with "leah", this wood, galde, clearing. Locational surnames were usually acquired by those former inhabitants of a place who has moved to another area, and were thereafter best identified by the name of their birthplace.
