My Grandad was Robert Seeley. My grandma was Mary Lee Seeley. Uncle John Seeley. The trend continues. I thought my dad's side of the family was of German origin. I'm not sure now.

Regina ( Seeley) Hatcher
Hi my name is Regina (Seeley) Hatcher, My father was Robert Leander Seeley who was born in Nova Scotia Canada, his father and grandfather were sea captains his mother was a school teacher but she passed with pneumonia when he was three so his grandmother Catherine and grandfather Guy Seeley brought him to Gloucester Mass to raise him, his father remarried and he has a step brother in Mass named Thomas Seeley and. My father passed in 2001 but I think thomas is still alive, I have a brother with the name Robert L. Seeley, he has a son named Robert L. Seeley and he had a son 2 months ago and his name is Robert L. Seeley. The name will live on. My sister sharon did a family ancestor check and found we originated from Cambridge and Oxford England then moved into Ireland, Germany and Scotland then moving on to Canada and then into Mass. I believe there is a Sir Robert Seeley orginating back to the 1400's Cambridge England. My sister has more info and she now lives in Scotland. My brother lives in Lake Elsinore, Ca, he has a Masters Degree in World History and is up on our familis background. One of the Robert Seeleys came to Conneticut and Mass and was 2nd in command to John Mason who fought the Pequote Indians and help to establish Watertown and a couple of other towns. He written in their historical societies and has plaques with is name on them. I hope this helped in some way. Long Live the Seeleys, however anyone wants to spell them they are all connected ion some way I do believe.

Ian Richard Seeley
I am a Seeley, and arrived here in the USA in 1976. In Wilton, Ct there is a SEELEY RD, as there is also in Bethel, CT and a few other places around here. In 1860 roughly half of the town of Bethel was owned by various Seeleys. Shortly after arriving in the USA I was approached by the Seeley Society of the USA, who held a convention in Cleveland of all places. The only place that I know of that is directly connected to my branch of the family is the town of SEELEY in Arizona, on the edge of the Sonora Desert. The Library in Bethel, CT is called the Seelye Library, which I have to believe is an ancient spelling mistake. Somebody writing down the name said there was an extra E in the name, and it got tacked onto the end. Sounds plausible. There are many, many Seeleys around.
My great-grandmother Eva Seeley married John Osterhout. They lived in Roscoe New York in mid 1800's to about 1915-16, when they moved to Binghamton, New York. They had 2 sons; Raymond, (my g.p.) & Kenneth. Would like to go further back. Anyone? Joan Peck, Fl.
I'm a Seeley from my father's side and we're very, very British. We've been able to trace our family back to Robert Seeley. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Seeley
I too have the last name Seley. My father was born in brown city michigan but his dad decided to move out to rancho cordova california during the 60s I wanna say. My grandfather is Lloyd Seley and my grandmother was Faye. Although I don't remember much of her because she died in a car crash when I was ten. But yeah weird that theres not many Seley but lots of Seeley and even a famous pitcher Aaron Sele.
Robert Seelye, son of William Seelye came to this country (USA) in 1630 from England and landed at Stamford Conn. The family has since spread across the nation with various spellings.
My great-great- grandfather was John Seeley born about 1835 in Johnstown area of Pennsylvania. He was a veteran of the Civil War, served on the front line in the Pennsylvania Regement. Married Jane Benson after the war and had 5 children including my great grandmother. He died in 1898. We're trying to find the family line and figure out our nationality. Is the Seeley name English, Irish, German, Jewish or all of the above.How do we figure out which one we are???? Can any of you Seeleys out there give us some help? Thank You Laura
