PAULEY Family History

Recorded in several forms as shown below, this is (usually) an English surname. However it has several origins. The first being that it is the diminutive form of the personal name Paul.This was a Crusader name, that is to say a name of biblical or Grecian origins which was introuduced into Europe and the British Isles after the famous expeditions to free the Holy Land from the Muslims in the 12th century. Returning knights often gave their offspring biblical names in honour of their fathers expolits in the Near East.
