The ancient roots of the Ernley family name are in the Anglo-Saxon culture. The name Ernley comes from when the family lived in the village of Ernle, in the county of Sussex.

Ernley Early Origins



The surname Ernley was first found in Sussex at West Wittering, a parish, in the union of West Hampnett, hundred of Manhood, rape of Chichester. "Wittering was the occasional residence of the bishops of Chichester from the thirteenth to the sixteenth century, when the episcopal palace, now called Cakeham Manor Place, became the property of the Ernley family; the ancient mansion has partly disappeared, and the remainder has been converted into a farmhouse."

The Great Migration



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Ernley arrived in North America very early:
