Keatley History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



In ancient Anglo-Saxon England, the ancestors of the Keatley surname lived in the settlement of Keighley in the West Riding of Yorkshire. The surname Keatley belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.


Early Origins of the Keatley family


The surname Keatley was first found in Yorkshire at Keighley, a market-town and parish, and the head of a union, in the E. division of the wapentake of Staincliffe and Ewcross. The first listing of the place name was Chichelai in the Domesday Book of 1086. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

"This place, anciently Kyghelay, was for many generations the property of the Kyghelay family, who either gave their name to, or derived it from, the manor; and of whom Gilbertus Kyghelay, of Utley, was buried here in 1203, according to an inscription on a stone still remaining in the parish church. In the reign of Edward I. Henry de Kyghelay, a member of the family, obtained the grant of a weekly market and an annual fair, with privilege of free warren for the inhabitants." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
