|The name buckley is of
Anglo-Saxon origin and came from when the family lived in any of the
places named Buckley, or Buckleigh, in England. buckley is a local
surname, which belongs to the category of hereditary surnames. There
are a variety of types of local surnames, some of which include:
topographic surnames, which could be given to a person who lived beside
any physical feature, such as a hill, stream, church or type of tree.
Habitation names form the other broad category of surnames that were
derived from place-names. They were derived from pre-existing names for
towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. Other local names are derived
from the names of houses, manors, estates, regions, and entire
counties. In this case, the surname buckley derived from the Old
English words bucc(a) and leah, which mean male goat and wood. The
surname, in this sense, would have been an occupational surname for
someone who raised or tended goats. The more common derivation,
however, comes from the places called Buckley and Buckleigh. Members of
the buckley family were first recorded as living in Cheshire.
