    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name probably from Halsey Farm in Sharnbrook (Bedfordshire), whose medieval spellings lack H- but which has been influenced by the adjacent wood, which was once called Haselho but is now also called Halsey. However, the early examples suggest that another as yet unidentified place (or places) may also have been a source.
