Name Meaning

English: habitational name from any of various places, for example in Derbyshire, Gloucestershire, Northumberland, Staffordshire, and Surrey, so named from Old English hors ‘horse’ + lēah ‘wood’, ‘clearing’. The reference is probably to a place where horses were put out to pasture. The surname is widespread in north-central England.
