Early Origins of the Nataley family
The surname Nataley was first found in Hampshire (now Southampton) where conjecturally, the surname is descended from the tenant of the lands of Nately, Ansketel from Hugh de Port, a Norman Baron who was recorded in the Domesday Book census of 1086. 
One of the first records of the family was Vincent de Nateleye who was listed there in the Hundredorum Rolls of 1275. A few years later, Richard de Natele was listed in the Subsidy Rolls of Sussex in 1296.

Nataley Spelling Variations
A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Nately, Nathaley, Natheley, Nathiley, Natly and many more.

Migration of the Nataley family
Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Nataley or a variant listed above: the name represented in many forms and recorded from the mid 17th century in the great migration from Europe. Migrants settled in the eastern seaboard from Newfoundland, to Maine, to Virginia, the Carolinas, and to the islands..
