Henley Genealogy & History

Henley is an English locational surname, from several towns named Henley in various parts of England. There are two major etymologies for the towns; first, some come from heah, for high or steep, and leah, for clearing or meadow, thus combining for an elevated grassy plain. Otherwise, they come from henn, meaning a chicken, and again leah, with the same meaning, and likely indicating a chicken farm near the woods. Henley family history comes to the New World with Christopher Henley, who sailed to Virginia in 1622. Some famous members of Henley genealogy are Pulitzer-winning playwright Beth Henley, Eagles drummer Don Henley, and Oracle Chairman Jeffrey Henley.
