What relationship do you have with the Darley's. Well, to answer your question the Darley family goes back a long way. The information I'm telling you is from documents I got from my grandfather Roy Darley who's sister did a background check on our family. The Darley family goes back to the time of the 11th century. The founder of our family name was a Norman knight in army of William The Conquerer. His name was Sir Edmund Darley. When William The Conquerer invaded England in 1066 my ancestor Sir Edmund was in his army. William The Conquerer wouldn't have won the Battle Of Hastings without him because he provided William The Conquerer with a huge cavalry force and because of this William won the Battle Of Hastings. In return for his deeds he was knighted and was given a large sum of land. He settled in Wistow, York, England where many of the Darley's lived for the next centuries. After that the many Darley's moved all around the world to settle in places such as the British Isles, America, Australia and New Zealand. My great great great grandfather John Darley came to Australia in the 19th century. He came as a normal citizen on the fifth fleet on a ship called the Lysander. He had a son who's name I'm not sure of and his son, my great grandfather was James Darley, followed by Roy Darley my grandfather and then my father Gerald Darley and then me.
