Origins Available: English, Italian, Scottish


When the ancestors of the CullÚ family emigrated to England following the Norman Conquest in 1066 they brought their family name with them. They lived in Derbyshire, in the area of Cully.

CullÚ Early Origins



The surname CullÚ was first found in Norfolk where Hunfrid de Cuelai was listed there in the Domesday Book. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Reaney, P.H and R.M. Wilson, A Dictionary of English Surnames. London: Routledge, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-415-05737-X)
However, we must look to the aforementioned reference of Derbyshire to find the earliest land grants for the surname. And Ratcliffe Culey, a hamlet near the border of Warwickshire and Leicestershire, part of the civil parish of Witherley can be ruled out as the origin of the name as the hamlet's first reference was in the 1600's.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. For such families, the shores of Ireland, Australia, and the New World beckoned. They left their homeland at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. Many arrived after the long voyage sick, starving, and without a penny. But even those were greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. Numerous English settlers who arrived in the United States and Canada at this time went on to make important contributions to the developing cultures of those countries. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name CullÚ were among those contributors: Samuel Culley who settled in Virginia in 1623; Charles Culley settled in New England in 1748; Edward Cully settled in Boston Massachusetts in 1829; John Culley settled in New York State in 1803.
