It's been interesting trying to find out where the name Hurley originated from. We live in South Africa and as far as I can tell my husbands family originated way back when from Ireland. Looking it up on the web can be confusing, when I have time I think I will try and see how far back I can trace the family. My husbands Grandfather was Mancel Hurley, and his father was Lawrence Gordon Hurley.

I am just learning about my Hurley roots and my great-great Irish Nana was born Eliza Hurley 1847in county cork but which place?i guess she came to England during the Famine...later married Wiliam George Douglas Scurr a Cigar Maker...they had 4 kids and one was my mothers moms mom who was 1 of three scholars of the her siblings. Mary Ann Scurr was her name,, very good news to know that I have Hurley Blood in me" I soon will be in Ireland in the south so wish me all the best,,, i hope so,,, laughing'
The fact that the description doesn't match your family doesn't mean it's incorrect, just incomplete. There are several meanings for a lot of the names listed on the website. Unfortunately, they didn't seem to do as thorough a job as necessary.
As already stated, this information is incorrect. The name Hurley is Irish, as was my father and all his forefathers. The 'information' stated above has a loud ring of 'made up as we went along' because you couldn't actually be bothered to do any research. Having visited the village of Hurley in Berkshire many times, I can tell you it is not on a corner or bend. It is arranged along two principle roads with a few small cul-de-sacs off, both roads leading to the banks of the River Thames. By road, there is only one way in and out of the village. Sadly, this site suffers from that ubiquitous American ailment: we don't actually know diddly-squat about history, so we'll just make it up. Just like all the English books you transform into 'American' fiction bearing no resemblance to the original story, save for stealing the title.
