Name Meaning

English: habitational name from Nether Padley (Derbyshire), which is recorded as Paddeley(e) in the 13th century, or perhaps from Upper Padley in Hathersage or Padley Hall in Ripley (both also Derbyshire). The placenames derive from the Old English personal name Pad(d)a or Old English padde ‘toad’ + lēah ‘woodland clearing’.
