The roots of the Anglo-Saxon name Crelly come from when the family resided in the counties of Northumberland, Sussex and Bedfordshire.

Crelly Early Origins



The surname Crelly was first found in Bedfordshire (Old English: Bedanfordscir), located in Southeast-central England, formerly part of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Mercia, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Crelly Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Crelly has been recorded under many different variations, including Crawley, Crawly, Craley, Crally and others.
