A Diminutive of Julian. For my study there are three pockets of the name all going back to the 1500's. Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Rutland.
Surrey & Sussex.
There are three main areas of the Jelley/Jelly surname.
Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Rutland
Somerset to South Wales
With the start of the DNA Project I hope to make more sense of the possible connections.
Births Marriages & Deaths from GRO Index Total 17,000.
Parish Register material for all Counties amlunts to a vast amount of information.
Many Family Trees all hoping to tie up at some stage.
Many contacts on these various trees in UK, Australia & New Zealand.
USA is another story yet to unfold
A DNA project has just been initiated in the hope that the many sections of the Jelley & Jelly surnames can somehow come together.
