    Name Meaning

    English: variant of Methley, a habitational name from Methley (Yorkshire). The placename may derive from Old English middel ‘middle’, replaced by the Old Norse cognate methal, + Old English lēah ‘woodland clearing’ or ēg ‘island’, or from Old English mǣth ‘mowing, the cutting of grass or corn’ + lēah. Topography suggests that Old English middel + ēg is the most likely origin.
