Reply to: Re: Meaning/origin or OWSLEY by Chrisell
According to the website below, Owsley was originally recorded as Ouseley, so your original surmise of "meadow near the river Ouse" may well be correct.

I can't independently verify it, but this site seems to have a reasonable explanation of the origin of the river Ouse's name:

Hope that helps :-)
