Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Eckerly is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived in the village of Adderley in Shropshire; the village was known as "Eldredelei" in the Domesday Book and was held by Nigel the Doctor. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Eckerly Early Origins



The surname Eckerly was first found in Shropshire at Adderley, a village and civil parish that literally means "woodland clearing of a woman called Athryth," from the Old English personal name + "leah." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Eckerly Spelling Variations



The first dictionaries that appeared in the last few hundred years did much to standardize the English language. Before that time, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. The language was changing, incorporating pieces of other languages, and the spelling of names changed with it. Eckerly has been spelled many different ways, including Adderley, Adderly, Addly, Adley, Aderly, Atherly, Atherley, Hadderley and many more.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Eckerlys to arrive in North America:
