Sealy is an Anglo-Norman surname, arriving in the British Isles with the Norman conquest of England in 1066 (although some claim it originated in Celtic Cornwall prior to the Norman invasion). The name was also found among the Anglo-Irish people of Counties Cork and Kerry in Ireland as far back as the 1500s. Multiple spellings are found throughout British and Irish history: Seally, Sealey, Seeley, Seely, Ceiley, Ceely, Celey, and others. Today the surname is mostly commonly found in the United States and Barbados, while the Sealey form is more common in England.
