The name Oxlade is an old Anglo-Saxon name. It comes from when a family lived in the parish of Bysshebury in Staffordshire, where they held lands and a family seat at Oxley. Oxlade is a topographic surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. In this case the original bearers of the surname were the dwellers near the ox-meadow.
