Looking to find any connection to the name GRAYELY, GRAILY,GRALEY,GRAILEY, GRAYLY. Frances Grayely, was a bonded prisoner, sentenced in Sept-Oct 1772 in Middelesex, England, was transported to the American Colonies, on the ship "TAYLOUR" arrived approximately 1773 at Albemarle County, Virginia. I know he had a brother, don't know his name.
Also the name was listed in Dublin early 1845 and in Rocketstown, Rathsville, county Carlow.
I'm trying to connect Frances to my g.g.g.grandfather James Grayley born abt. 1786 also in Albemarle county,Virginia.
He was the only Grayely in the region at the time.
LIKENS. trying to find out if there is any name such as Likens or Lekins in Ireland. Might be old norse.
