Foley is a surname which originated in Ireland, in the southeast Munster region. The name is derived from the original modern Irish Ó Foghlú and older Irish Ó Foghladha, meaning "plunderer". The Lord of the Decies (the Waterford area of Munster) was a title attributed to some early Foleys.
Waterford became the family seat, there being Foley’s still in the area. At some stage the family migrated to England and settled in the Midlands.
