HAILEY Family HistoryThis interesting name is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and may be either a locational or a topographical surname. As a locational name, Hailey derives from either one of the places so called, in Hertfordshire, near Hoddesdon, or in Oxfordshire, near Witney. The place in Hertfordshire is recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as 'Hailet', and as 'Heyle' in 1374, while the place in Oxfordshire is listed in the Hundred Rolls of the county, of 1275, as 'Hayle'. Both places share the same meaning and derivation, which is 'the hay clearing', from the Old English pre 7th Century 'heg', hay with 'leah', clearing, glade.
