    Name Meaning

    English (Lancashire): habitational name from Walmersley in Lancashire or Walmesley in Bolton le Moors (Lancashire). The surnames are distinct in the medieval period, because of the presence or absence of -r-, but impossible to separate thereafter. The placename is derived from an Old English personal name, Waldmēr or Walhmēr + Old English lēah ‘woodland clearing’.
