James Harley
E-mail: james.harley@btinternet.com

I can trace my direct family origins to 1704 in the parish of Oaken, Codsall, Staffordshire, England. It was here that Thomas Areley/Airley was settled under the Poor Law with his wife Ann (no maiden name known). They had five surviving children, all baptised in Pattingham.
Mary, 12 May 1705
Thomas, 13 Nov 1708
George, 23 Sept 1711
Joseph, 26 Dec 1714, and
James, 6 July 1718.
Thomas (senior) was probably born around 1685 and died 19 June 1720. The family lived for many generations in and around the villages of Boningale and Albrighton. Common names for offspring were, John, Thomas, George, Titus, Joseph, Ann, Mary and Sarah. Although the heraldic Harley family lived in nearby Brampton Bryan, I can find no connection to their line. However, it might be possible that as predominately farm labourers that the name was `adopted` as from working for that family? Lastly, the actual name has many combinations of spelling, Areley and Airley being just two. My only known connection with the Americas is that I had an uncle who moved to Vancouver BC just prior to World War II. In the past others may have left England as economic migrants?

My main area of research is the Scottish Harleys, I have much information about the early families but cannot bridge the gap to my grandfather, Kenneth Harley (b. Scotland / Edinburgh circa 1874.) Meanwhile, whilst chasing aimlessly round trying to track him down I have amassed a great deal of other Harley data, irrelevant to my direct line but of possible use to others so I have started to build a website, http://www.harley.4t.com . If anyone else can find any information on it relevant to their researches I would be so pleased! I would be very happy to hear from any Harley researchers, especially those with Scottish connections.

Surnames: Harley from Baden in Germany to South Africa
Looking for Harley, I believe who came from Baden in Germany,imigrated to South Africa. All I have is his name, W.N.H Harley, and he married a cousin of his by the name of Miss Harley in 1873. They owned farms in East Qriqualand and then a farm in Ramsgate South Africa by the name of Baden on Sea.
