Early Origins of the Nataly family
The surname Nataly 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.

Nataly Spelling Variations
It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, Anglo-Norman surnames like Nataly are characterized by many spelling variations. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages such as Norman French and Latin, even literate people regularly changed the spelling of their names. The variations of the name Nataly include Nately, Nathaley, Natheley, Nathiley, Natly and many more.

Migration of the Nataly family
Faced with the chaos present in England at that time, many English families looked towards the open frontiers of the New World with its opportunities to escape oppression and starvation. People migrated to North America, as well as Australia and Ireland in droves, paying exorbitant rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, but those who did see the shores of North America were welcomed with great opportunity. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America carried the name Nataly, 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..
