My name is Rad Ainley (abbreviated Radley)and I live in the North East of England, although I, like my family originated from Yorkshire.
The name has Nordic derravations, and in modern history, the name is most commonly found in Yorkshire, although around 1200ad the name was most commonly found in the bordre regions of Scotland. Like the common sense people we are we must have moved south for the better weather at some point.
There are one or two strands to the Ainley tree, and I am not aware of any of my realtives migrating to Illinios. However, feel free to look at my website www.ainleyfamilytree.net
if you have not already done so.
