Rowley Genealogy & History

Rowley is an English locational surname from several villages named such in Staffordshire, Yorkshire, and various other parts of England, though originally the spellings varied considerably. All the village names come from the Old English ruh, meaning rough or overgrown, and leah, for sparse forest or a clearing in the woods, combining for a woody meadow or some such. Rowley family history starts in 1219, when William de Ruelay was noted as a witness in the Assize Court Rolls of Yorkshire. Notable members of Rowley genealogy include award-winning geneticist Janet Rowley, Union General Thomas Rowley, and British Admiral William Rowley.
