Name Meaning

Northern English: habitational name, in most cases probably a variant of Thornley , although there are places called Thorley (in Hertfordshire (near Bishop's Stortford) and in the Isle of Wight), which could have contributed to the surname; these are also named from Old English þorn ‘thorn bush’ + lēah ‘wood’, ‘clearing’.
