History of Great Wyrley
Derived from 2 Old English words: wir and leah, came the word “Wyrley”. Wir meaning “bog myrtle” and leah meaning “woodland clearing”. This suggests that Great Wyrley began as a small marshland or woodland. The “Great” reference is from its larger size over Little Wyrley.
The Normans, or “men from the north” also called ‘Vikings’, appeared in the Seine Bay in 811 AD, giving their name to that part of Gaul (Normandy, France). Warleys were there from 811 to 1066, totalling 255 years. William De Warlay (alt. Warley), was born in Normandy, and took part in the 1066 Norman Conquest under William the Conqueror. William de Warley and his son Robert, often called Robert de Parva Wirley, had huge grants of land in Staffordshire, which they named Little and Great Wyrley. The names De Warley, DeWirley, Worley, De Wirley, and even Wordly are all believed to be his descendants.
This different etymology is believed to be based on extracts from early versions of Burke’s Landed Gentry, the accuracy in many instances is suspect. In particular, recent discussions of the history of Great Wyrley don’t mention Warley and they disagree with the above as to ownership of the land immediately after the Conquest. The origins of the name based on Willam de Warlay is not confirmed further documentation of Warley’s arrival in this area.
