I'm a Riley from east Texas. Proudly
I am a Riley In Berkshire Uk. My Dad (Peter) Grew up in South London.
Having seen a family tree full of Patrick Riley's it is safe to say we came over during the great spud famine. (And I am lucky we did) Hello to all the other Riley's of the word
I'm a Riley from east Texas. :D hi Riley Folk!
Riley from Indiana here.
My last name is McNamee, and I'm fourth generation of my family in the U.S. (I think!). But we know that prior to the American Civil War, my great-great-great (give or take a few greats) grandfather was Hugh Riley, in Ireland. We're pretty sure he was from Cork, but he immigrated to America and changed our name to McNamee. I love being a McNamee, but if anyone has any insight on Rileys in Cork, I'd love to hear about it!
Riley from Philadelphia PA.
Hi Rileys! A Riley here from Glasgow, Scotland. I've enjoyed reading all your stories. Good luck with the family tracing.
Greetings to all the other Riley's out there, just wondering how you can determine if your last name is irish or english in origin? I'm wondering if my last name is just an anglicized form of the classic name or if it's just English. Thanks!
Hi all you Riley's, I'm a New Mexico Riley. I am very Proud of my Irish Roots on both sides of the house !
I am also a New Mexico Riley! I don't know much about my roots but I'm pretty sure it's Irish!
hi ya Riley's..........i'm from kent ...but was born in Bermondsey London still searching for our origins......complicated eh?....
This is so interesting! My Great-great Grandfather was Hugh Riley From County Caven. When I google the name, there seems to be quite a few Hughs! It is very interesting to read all of your storys, and see where you are all from!
There's probably no evidence of a 'Riley in Devonshire' because Devonshire doesn't exist and never has. It's the county of Devon. Derbyshire was occasionally spellt incorrectly hence we have a Duke of Devonshire, who is actually the Duke of Derbyshire but there never has been a Devonshire...
From Ohio. My father tells of a story that his father told him. Two brothers came from Ireland to escape murder charges. They dropped the O from O'Riley and we became Riley has anyone else heard this story? Please email me at email@example.com if so.
