My name is David Orley, born to George Orley of Belvedere, who was born to John Orley of West Ham, who was born to Samuel Orley of Beer, Devon. I am also related to the Maynard family of Belvedere, Kent - my stepfather was Arthur Maynard (Orley).
I am researching my family history and have set up this site in the hope that descendents of West Ham/Woolwich Orleys, including those in Australia, may wish to share information about the Orley families.
My research includes Census data relating to the Beer/Seaton Orleys and also to the families who later settled in North Woolwich. I am in contact with cousins both here and in Australia and have gained a lot of email details about the Orley family. I have also researched into the Orley/Maynard connection.
The History (or next) link provides just a brief look into the families past. I am happy to share the results of my research with other family members.
