Notly is a name that dates far back into the mists of early British history to the days of the Anglo-Saxon tribes. It is derived from a habitational name from the places Black and White Notley in Essex. These place names derive from the Old English "hnut" meaning a "nut tree," and "le-ah," which referred to a clearing. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Notly or a variant listed above: Mary, Catherine and Thomas Nott settled in Maine in 1635; Edward Notley, who settled in Virginia in 1664; Mathew Notley, who arrived in Maryland in 1670.
