I am at this forum because I am researching the name Berkley. After 3 years of diligent research, I have found my family use the names of Bartley, Barclay, Berckley, Bartlett, Barkley.Their name is Berkeley!! I know that because my grandfather was Benjamin Berkeley Gill and I know the story behind the family. I found 3 marriages in Prince Georges County today that were listed as Bartley and I know they are Berkleys. I think that when they told the clerk at the marriage bureau what their name was, the clerk just wrote it as it sounded. I am researching in the late 1700's and early 1800's right now.
