 Recorded in the 'modern' spellings of Weakley, Weekely, Weekley, and Weekly, this is an English locational surname. It comes from the village of Weekley, near Kettering, in the county of Northamptonshire. The village has the distinction of being one of the first place names to be recorded anywhere. It appears in the charters known as 'Cartulium Saxoni', or in effect the Saxon gazetteer for the year 843 A.D., almost at the very beginning of written English history.
