ASTLEY Family History

Recorded in several spellings including Astley, Astle, and Astell, this ancient and noble English surname is first recorded in the 13th century, but its origins are much earlier. It derives from the pre 7th century descriptive topographical words 'est leah', meaning the farm or perhaps settlement, to the east (of the main village). As such the origination is from such places as Astle in Cheshire, or any of the villages called Astley in the counties of Lancashire, Shropshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire.
