A Daly at Agincourt?

An archer named John Daly accompanied Henry V to France in 1415, and thus is likely to have fought at the battle of Agincourt. Apparently English archers of the time may have been largely recruited from Ireland, Scotland and Wales and were often yeomen rather than landless peasants. I wonder how many Dalys there were 600 years ago?
