Origen: Normando. When the ancestors of the Lea family emigrated to England following the Norman Conquest in 1066 they brought their family name with them. They lived in any of the various places named Leigh in England. There are at least 16 counties that contain a place named Leigh. The place-name was originally derived from the Old English word leah, which means wood clearing. The English Lea family is descended from the Norman Lea family.The family name Lea became popular in England after the Norman Conquest, when William the Conqueror gave his friends and relatives most of the land formerly owned by Anglo-Saxon aristocrats. The Normans frequently adopted the names of their recently acquired estates in England.
