Aglovale (or Agloval) is also spelled AGLOUALE ((sometimes called
Aglavale, probably a clerical error).

The origin is Welsh:

Nowhere I found the meaning of this name. Perhaps there is a connection with the following Welsh elements (translated online, so I'm not sure about the accuracy):

Welsh agl = "trap"
Welsh o = "of"
Welsh vale = "valley, vale, dale, dell, bottom land"

So the meaning of the Welsh name Aglovale COULD be something like "trap of the valley".
