Early Origins of the Nathely family
The surname Nathely 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.

Nathely Spelling Variations
The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Nathely has been recorded under many different variations, including Nately, Nathaley, Natheley, Nathiley, Natly and many more.

Migration of the Nathely family
To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Nathelys were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in 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..
