FAWLEY
Hypothetical Old English, either 'Fealuleah'='fallow(-coloured) wood/clearing' (ie: the colour of vegetation which is no longer green), or 'Fealgleah'='clearing with land broken in for arable'. A further complication concerns a 10th century charter form 'falethlea'. It is not known whether it refers to this place. If it does, then the first element would appear to be Old English 'filethe'='hay', but in a form which is that of the Mercian dialect.
The name of 'Fawley hundred' in east Hampshire, is as in the first sentence of this entry (1086 'Falelie' 1158 'Falelea').
