The surname Coverly was first found in Buckinghamshire where two early records of the family were found in the Hundredorum Rolls of 1273: Malger de Covele; and Bartholemew de Covele.  Coberley is a village and civil parish in the Cotswold District of Gloucestershire. In this case, the village dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 where it was first known as Culberlege.  Literally the place name means "wood or clearing of a man called Cuthbrorht," from the Ole English personal name + "leah."  Both name are local names.
