The ancestors of the Huntley surname lived among the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. The name comes from when they lived in the settlement of Huntley in Gloucestershire. The surname Huntley belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. The name Huntley was also given to people who dwelled by "the hunter's wood."

Huntley Early Origins



The surname Huntley was first found in Monmouthshire 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.

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants:
