English (Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Yorkshire, and Lancashire): habitational name, mostly from Smithley in Wombwell (Yorkshire) but also from Smedley (Lancashire). The placenames probably mean ‘wood or woodland clearing of the smiths’, from Old English smitha, genitive plural form of smith ‘smith’, + lēah ‘woodland clearing’.
