Catley History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The ancient Anglo-Saxon surname Catley came from the Old French names Caterine and Cateline, which were forms of the personal name Catharine. These names were introduced into England in the 12th century and became very popular, especially in the variant forms Catelin and Cateline. Thus the surname Catley is a metronymic type of surname, and is derived from the name of the original bearer's mother.

Early Origins of the Catley family


The surname Catley was first found in Wiltshire. Some of the first records of the family were found her in the Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 that included early spelling of the name: Geoffrey Gatelin; and Johanna Gatelyn. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
