Coley Genealogy & History

Coley is derived from the eighth-century Old English colig, meaning swarthy or dark-skinned, a term was used by the light-haired and light-skinned invading Saxons. The family coat of arms is an ermined shield with a wide chevron on the bottom half, with three gold fleurs-de-lis, each having a lion head centered on it. Coley family history tells us that Hugh Coly is the first known of the name in the King Rolls of Yorkshire, England, in 1212. Two members of the Coley genealogy are bone surgeon William Bradley Coley and actor, author, guitarist, pianist, and singer John Ford Coley.
