meaning of my surname
Hi Ive been trying to discover for a while now, what my surname
means and I still have no idea. Does anyone out there
know and can tell me please? I would love to know what "INSLEY"
means. Thanks

It'll have to be a guess ...but I'm fairly certainly it can be found ...I'd suspect it's English ...or maybe a hybrid word. The "-ley" in most English names is related to "leah" or a meadow ...the prefix "Ins-" may have some Celtic origins ..."innis" is an island in Irish ...So, it's possible the name means something like "the person from the island with the meadow" or something of that sort ...
