The story of the Aasie family stretches back through time to the Viking settlers who populated the rugged shores of Scotland in the Medieval era. The name Aasie was derived from the name Aassi, which is a Old Norse form of the Old English personal name Oswald, which means divine power. The original spelling of the surname Aasie was Aassiesen, and this form is preserved in the Shetlands; many diminutive forms of the surname also exist. The surname was recorded in the Landnamabok (the Icelandic Book of settlement), as Asi.

Aasie Early Origins



The surname Aasie was first found in the Shetlands, where it is a form of Oswald.

The Great Migration



Those who made the voyage were greeted with ample opportunity to acquire land and a political climate far away from the oppressive monarchy of the old country. They settled along the east coast of what would become Canada and the United States. In the American War of Independence, those who remained loyal to England traveled north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. In this century, many Scots living in North America have begun to recover their rich heritage through festivals, highland games, and Clan societies. An examination of passenger and immigration lists has shown early immigrants bearing the name Aasie: William Hoseason, and family who migrated directly from the Shetlands about 1730 to Jamai ca. This family eventually married into the distinguished Bruce family of Jamaica..
