Title: Oxley Origins
Post by: Vincent Exley on December 09, 2008, 11:12:52 AM
Oxley is an English surname and many Oxleys in America trace their origins to England.  However, there are instances in the colonial records of Georgia in which the German surname Oechsle was rendered as Oxley.  Therefore, this question comes to mind: are there Oxleys today who  have ancestors with the German name Oechsle or variations, such as Oechslen or Oechslin?
