Name Meaning

English: habitational name from Oversley in Arrow (Warwickshire). The etymology of the placename is uncertain; it may be from the Old English personal name Ofe + Old English lēah ‘woodland clearing’, with forms in -r- due to association of the first element with Old English ōfer ‘bank’ and uferra ‘higher, upper’. Alternatively, from Ouseley in Aston Eyre (Shropshire).History: This surname was brought to North America by Major Thomas Owsley c. 1677; he was born in Stogursey in Somerset, England.
