Hello can anyone help? I am trying to research my surname which might have once been spelt EMLEY. The only EMLY's I've found on the internet are American but we live in England. My grandad is PATRICK CHARLES b.19-3-1921 in London. His farther was JOHN EMLY b.27-9-1875 and mother Margaret Ethel Gibbins b.16-3-1879. We think the name EMLY is Irish.
