HOWLEY Family History

This is an Olde English locational name from the hamlet of Howley near Bradford in Yorkshire, or from residence by an enclosure (leah) on a hill (Hugl). The origin is Olde English pre 7th Century and the appearance of the surname in many parts of the country suggests that at some point in time probably around 1400, there was a wholesale emigration from the village. Either way the origin does not appear to have been a bar to success, William Howley (1766 - 1848) being Archbishop of Canterbury and Henry Howley was an Irish Patriot, executed after the 1798, Rising.
