In Reply to: Tooleys of London by Angela Tooley of 838

I have about a dozen TOOLEYs including me who are/were from London. I was under the impression it was an old saxon name derived from Tula meaning a bard. I was told by another researcher that it has its roots in Lincolnshire. I dont know about an Irish connection but if there is anything to it there would be many TOOLEYs still in Ireland and I don't think there are (I havn't looked very hard though)
I am expecting to get some more info soon from a fellow researcher my second or third cousin I think.
