Scottish history reveals Pasley was first used as a surname by the Strathclyde-Briton people. It was a name for someone who lived in the town of Paisley in Renfrew (now part of the Strathclyde region).

Pasley Early Origins



The surname Pasley was first found in Renfrewshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Rinn Frił), a historic county of Scotland, today encompassing the Council Areas of Renfrew, East Renfrewshire, and Iverclyde, in the Strathclyde region of southwestern Scotland, where they held a family seat from early times and their first records appeared on the early census rolls taken by the early Kings of Scotland to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.
