Early References to the Surname CURSLEY
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The earliest reference I can find to the surname appears in 1522.  The will of Robert Cooke, Chaplain, Vicary of Churcham in Gloucestershire contains a bequest, 'To the mending of the highway from Curseley's brigge forwards John Hewitts house 6s 8d '  the highway led to Curseley's farm, now Beauchamp House.
