Origin of Surname
Members of the Le Pelley family owned the leasehold of Sark, and seven generations of the Le Pelley family were Seigneurs of Sark.
The surname is of Norman origin, and whilst the surname is now extinct in Normandy, there have been a number of notable Normans who have borne this name - including the corsair Georges Pléville Le Pelley (1726-1805).
