DUNLEA Family History

Recorded as Dunly, Dunley, Dunlay and the transposed Dunlea, this is an English surname. It is locational and originates from any of the villages called Dunley in the counties of Surrey, Worcester and Wiltshire. All have much the same meaning of the farm on the hill, from the pre 7th century Olde English 'dun' meaning a hill and 'leah', an area of land fenced for agriculture. Locational surnames are usually 'from' names. That is to say surnames given to people after they left their original homes to move somewhere else. In so doing, they took or were given, for easy identification the name of their former home...
