    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from one or more of various places called Rowley or Rowly, such as Rowley Regis (Staffordshire), Rowley (Devon, Durham), Rowleygreen Farm (Hertfordshire), Rowly (Surrey), Rowley (East Yorkshire), Rowley, near Bardsey (Yorkshire), Rowley in Lepton (Yorkshire), and Rowley Hill (Essex). The placenames probably all derive from Old English rūh ‘rough’ + lēah ‘woodland clearing’, though the East Yorkshire place may have been named with hlāw ‘mound, hill’ as the second element.

    Irish: from Ó Roghallaigh, a variant of Ó Raghailligh. See Riley and O'Reilly .
