Early Origins of the Nathaly family
The surname Nathaly 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.

Nathaly Spelling Variations
Before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Sound was what guided spelling in the Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Nathaly family name include Nately, Nathaley, Natheley, Nathiley, Natly and many more.

Migration of the Nathaly family
To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Nathaly family to immigrate North America: 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..
