Manley Genealogy & History

Manley is a locational English name derived from Old English moene (meaning common/shared) and leah (meaning clearing/wood), with villages named Manley in Devonshire and Cheshire. Manley family history dates to 1066, when the family was granted Cheshire lands by William the Conqueror. The registration of their coat of arms, with its black hand held up symbolizing justice, mentions companions in arms with King William. The Manley motto, manus haec inimica tyrannis, means this hand is hostile to tyrants. Another possible derivation is as a nickname for someone manly or brave. Spelling variations include Mandley, Manleigh, Manly, and Mannley. American Manley genealogy dates to 1630 in Massachusetts.
