Ernle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (358 words)
Ernle was the surname of an English landed family descended from the lords of the manor of Earnley in Sussex.
The Sussex branch of the family gave rise to Sir John Ernle or Ernley, Chief Justice of the Court of Common Pleas (1519-1521), during the reign of King Henry VIII of England, whose career and family connexions are detailed in the DNB and its successor, the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography.
Though apparently extinct as a surname in the United Kingdom, it has been actively preserved as the second component of the quadruple-barrelled surname, Plunkett-Ernle-Erle-Drax (see double-barrelled surname), borne by descendants of the 17th Baron of Dunsany, whose wife was Ernle Elizabeth Ernle-Erle-Drax, née Grosvenor, a female-line descendant of the Wiltshire Ernle family.
