HALLEY Family History

This interesting and unusual name of Scots and English origin is locational from places so called 'lost' village in Derbyshire, the latter suggested by the wealth of early recordings of the name in that county. The derivation is probably named with the Olde English pre 7th Century 'hall', hale, with '(ge)hoeg', an enclosure. The phenomena of the 'lost' village was a result of enforced land clearance, at the height of the wool industry in the 14th Century when whole village were cleared to make way for sheep pastures.
