Name Meaning

English: habitational name from Annesley Woodhouse in Nottinghamshire, or from Ansley in Warwickshire. The first is named from an unattested Old English personal name Ān + lēah ‘wood’, ‘clearing’. (The affix Woodhouse is a later, medieval addition.) The second is from Old English ānsetl ‘hermitage’ + lēah.
