Origins Available: English , Irish , Scottish


The Norman Conquest of England in 1066 brought much change to the island nation, including many immigrants with new names. Among these immigrants were the ancestors of the Cauley family, who lived in Norfolk, where they were Lords of the Castle of Cailly.


Early Origins of the Cauley family


The surname Cauley was first found in Norfolk where one of the first records of the name was William de Kailli, de Caly who was listed in the Curia Regis Rolls of 1210. Alternatively the name Caley, is a fairly common Manx name. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Cailly, Calley, Callis, Cally, Caley, Cayley and many more.

Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Cauley or a variant listed above:

The Cauley Motto


The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Callide et honeste
Motto Translation: Wisely and honourably.
