Re: Meaning of the surname FOLLEY

In Reply to: Meaning of the surname FOLLEY by Steve Treadwell of 111

Dear Steve- A man who was from Scotland told me that the pronunciation of the surname Follett in his country was
'Fo-lay'. Very similar to Folley don't you think? The Follett surname (with many variations on spellings) has been traced back to Normandy and possibly Odo Foliot, half-brother of William the Conqueror. I don't know if there is any connection with the Folley surname, but I guess it wouldn't hurt to check into it. Happy Hunting!
