Ashley Genealogy & History

Ashley is a locational English surname derived from pre-7th century Old English "aesc" (ash tree) and "leah" (meadow). Springing up in many places simultaneously, the surname was simply bestowed upon local landowners who had previously lived in the parishes called Ashley, generally known for their pastures and ash trees. In Ashley family history, the ancient family seat was in Cheshire, with other Ashley families found in Kent, Wiltshire, Staffordshire, Cambridge, and Northamptonshire. The first recorded Ashley was Walter de Esselega in 1162 in Gloucestershire. In America, Ashley genealogy dates back to the first permanent English settlement in Jamestown, Virginia, in 1624.
