Name Meaning

English (Yorkshire and Lancashire): habitational name from Calverley in Yorkshire, named with Old English calfra (genitive plural of calf ‘calf’) + lēah ‘woodland clearing’. Alternatively, in some instances the name may be a variant of the habitational name Calveley, from a place so called in Cheshire (with the same meaning as above), or from Calverleigh in Devon, meaning ‘the clearing of the bare wood’ (Old English calu ‘bare, bald’ + wudu ‘wood’ + lēah ‘woodland clearing’).
