    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from Pedley in Prestbury (Cheshire), Pedley Wood in Clophill (Bedfordshire), Pidley, part of Pidley cum Fenton (Huntingdonshire), or Pedley Barton, in East Worlington (Devon). The Cheshire placename derives from the Old English personal name Pēoda or Pedda, Pædda + Old English lēah ‘woodland clearing’. The Bedfordshire and Devon placename probably derives from an Old English personal name Pydda + lēah. The Huntingdonshire placename may have the same etymology as the Bedfordshire placename, or may alternatively derive from Old English pidele ‘fen, marshland’.
