Turley Family History

This is an anglicized form of the Olde Gaelic name Mac Toridhealbhaigh. The Gaelic prefix 'mac' indicates 'son (of)', plus the personal name 'To(i)r' meaning 'Towering Warrior' and 'dealbhach' translating as 'statuesque' or 'in the shape of'. The names Turley and Torley (usually without the prefix 'Mac') are mainly found in the Northern Irish counties of Antrim, Down, Armagh and Derry. On June 4th 1791, one A(r)my Turley married a John Brown in Belfast, County Antrim. A Patrick (Mc) Torley is recorded in Londonderry (October 23rd 1813). It is interesting to note that the surname Turley suddenly appears in County Roscommon Church Registers circa 1865...

Trying to find where Mary Turley came from in Ireland . She came from Illinois in covered wagon to Nodaway county, MO in 1800's. She was my grandmother's grandmother.


Our branch of the Turley family lived in Ballydoloney, Mayobridge, Newry, Co. Down and in Castletown, Co. Laois.
