TWAMLEY Family History
This very interesting surname is English. As there is no known place as Twamley, this suggests that it is almost certainly one of a small group of descriptive topographical surnames which originally commenced "aet or atte", and over the centuries became "fused". We believe that the surname derives from an early form of place name such as "aet Wemba leah", now Wembley in Middlesex, or from "aet Wuma-Legh", now Warmley in the county of Gloucestershire. The first place is recorded in the Ancient British rolls of the year 825 a.d, whilst the second appears in the Pipe Rolls of Gloucestershire for in the year 1205 a.d.
