CULLY Family HistoryThis interesting surname, with variant spelling Cully, is a patronymic form of the personal name "Col", itself being a nickname or shortened form of Nicholas -(Ni)col(as). The Greek name of great antiquity is derived from the elements "nike" meaning victory, and "laos" people; hence "victory people". The name is found in pre-Conquest England, with one appearing in the Domesday Book as holding land before 1086. It would seem that in Norfolk circa 1550, it was common for "o" to be substituted by "u" to create Cubitt from Cobbett, and Cullyer from Collier; hence Culley from Colley.
