COAKLEY Family HistoryThis is a surname of Olde English origins. It derives from 'Cokelei' as recorded in the 1086 Domesday Book, and translating as 'The lands of Coca', a baptismal name. There are in fact three such villages in England, in the counties of Worcester, Oxford and Suffolk, although the surname in its various and varied forms, is most recorded in London. This is not in itself unusual. It probably means that between the 14th and 17th centuries the various villages were 'cleared' for sheep farming, and the tenants then moved to the 'mecca' - as London was so perceived to be. In so doing they would take with them as their identity the name of their former village, and given local dialects and poor spelling, this would create the various forms...

Liz Coakley Wakefield
Hi, Elizabeth Coakley Wakefield here. I currently live in Rathooragh near Schull. My mums family were Coakley and came from Garranes North, Drimoleague. Some of the family emigrated to the US and some to Australia. If anyone has any info that'd be great. Thanks.
Greetings all, My branch of the Coakley tree runs back from present day US back to Anguilla, British West Indies where Edward, Thomas, and Caesar all appear on the 1716 census. Not sure how they arrived in Anguilla but presuming from St Kitts, circa 1650-1700. Total population on Anguilla is a whopping 89 families in 1716. Found some old letters referencing family associated with the Colclough's of Tintern Abbey (Wexford) but it seems our branch was spelling Coakley since 1716. Not sure if/when our branch changed from Colclough.
