Meaning & History

Of English origin and is locational from a place so called in Gloucestershire, which was first recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as 'Dersilege', in the Pipe Rolls of Gloucestershire in 1195 as 'Derseleie' and in the Fees of 1220 as 'Dursleg'. The derivation is from an Old English personal name 'Deorsige' with 'leah', a grove.

A well-known example are the characters Vernon; Petunia; Dudley and Marge Dursley from the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling.
