BARLOW Family History

This name is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and is locational from any of the several places thus called, for example Barlow in the West Riding of Yorkshire, Lancashire and Derbyshire. The first named, recorded as "Bernlege" in Early Yorkshire Charters, dated 1030, and as "Berlai" in the Domesday Book of 1086, derives its first element from the Olde English pre 7th Century "bere(n)" meaning barley, plus "-leag", a clearing, hence, "clearing where barley grew". Barlow in Lancashire, appearing as "Berlawe" in the 1260 Assize Court Rolls of that county, is so called from the Olde English "bere", as before, plus "-hlaw", a hill; hence, "barley hill"...
