A list of members of the English Ernle family, along with agnate descendants of the family surnamed Bruce, Burdett, Burdett-Coutts, Chatfield, Drax, Erle-Drax, Kyrle-Money, Money, Money-Kyrle, Plunkett (Lord Dunsany), Plunkett-Ernle-Erle-Drax, Prothero (Rowland Prothero, 1st Baron Ernle) and Sawbridge-Erle-Drax, as well as, in some cases, their spouses, places closely associated with the Ernle family, such as their current or former family seats, and, occasionally, dignities held by members of the family, as is the case with the office of High Sheriff of Wiltshire (N.B. 12 instances of the members of the Ernle family listed on that page, and, at least, one descendant, Ernle Warriner). Variant spellings of this surname include Earnly, Erneley, Ernley and Ernly, among many others. The surname is derived from the Sussex parish of Earnley. This surname survives as the second barrel of the surname of the family of Plunkett-Ernle-Erle-Drax, of Charborough House, Charborough Park, Dorset.
