The name Charly arrived in England after the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Charly family lived in Worcestershire. The Charly family was originally from Charlett, Normandy, and it is from this place that their surname derives. Charlett comes from a baptismal name which means Charles, which stems from the Old French name, Charlys. As the naming tradition grew in Europe baptismal names began to be introduced in many countries. Baptismal names were sometimes given in honor of Christian saints and other biblical figures. There are hardly any Christian countries in Europe that did not adopt surnames from these religious figures.

Charly Early Origins



The surname Charly was first found in Worcestershire where they held a family seat from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Charly Spelling Variations



A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Charley, Charly, Charlet, Charlett, Charlette and others.
