The library included documentation of the actions of the Missouri senate and house. The documents were cataloged and made available to the public. The public had access to any of the books in the library from sunup to sundown on any day except Sunday.

    Name Meaning

    English and Scottish: habitational name from Blackley, north of Manchester in Lancashire, or possibly in some instances from Blackley in Yorkshire, from apparently a compound of Old English blæc + lēah ‘black clearing’. Some forms suggest the name may be derived from an unrecorded place in Bury or Prestwich called Blakelaw ‘black hill’ (Old English blæc ‘black’ + hlāw ‘hill’) or that Blackley was also known as Blakelaw. Confusion between -law and -ley is not uncommon. The surname was confused with (and may also be a source of) Blakey .English: habitational name from Blakeley Hall in Witton le Wear (County Durham), from Old English blæc ‘black’ + hlāw ‘hill’.English: habitational name probably from Blakeley in Staffordshire, with the same etymology as 1 and 2 above.
