Re: Origin of Tooley surname

The Tooley's who came to Virginia approximately 1700 - 1710 spelled their name Tuley. One line of the family kept the original spelling and settled mostly in W. Virginia. Sometime in the early 1800's the spelling was changed to Tooley.

That original spelling could be the reason that no Tooley shows up in the Dublin book.
