Onley Savill Onley (Onley Harvey): An Overview

The information I have about Onley comes from the following sources:

1. Information supplied to me by Carla Woodworth Lynas and based on the 'Original Genealogical Collections, by the late Lieut. Col. Robert John Harvey of Thorpe'.  This is mentioned in a publication called 'Walter Rye, Memoir Bibliography and Catalogue of of his Norfolk Manuscripts in the Norwich Public Libraries' by Geo. A. Stephen published in 1929? by the Public Libraries Committee, Norwich.  Original documents in the Norfolk Archives.
2. Various family portraits recorded in the book 'Portraits in Norfolk Houses' by Prince Frederick Duleep Singh, Vol 1, undated but published around 1927.  Intwood Hall, the property of Colonel Clement William Joseph Unthank, 21st September, 1907.  Page 334.


In 1822, on the death of his father's maternal uncle , the Rev Charles Onley, the family changed their name to Savill Onley.
