An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The ancient Dalriadan clans of Scotland spawned the name Ailysome. It is derived from the name for the son of "Ellis" or Ellis' son. Conversely, the surname could be is derived from "Alice" as in "the son of Alice." It is likely though that the name was derived from "Ellis" rather than the female personal name. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Ailysome Early Origins



The surname Ailysome was first found in the county of Lanarkshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Lannraig) a former county in the central Strathclyde region of Scotland, now divided into the Council Areas of North Lanarkshire, South Lanarkshire, and the City of Glasgow, where they acquired some time before 1300 the territories of their family seat at Loupe. They were descended from Angus Mor MacDonnell, Lord of the Isles, their Gaelic name was MacAllister, and it is difficult through history to distinguish one name from the other.

Spelling was not yet standardized, and so, an enormous number of spelling variations appear in records of early Scottish names. Ailysome has appeared as Allison, Alison, Alinson, Allinson, McAllister, MacAllister, Ellison and many more.

The Great Migration



Many settled along the east coast of what would become the United States and Canada. As the American War of Independence broke out, those who remained loyal to the crown went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. The ancestors of all of these hardy Dalriadan-Scottish settlers began to recover their collective history in the 20th century with the advent of the vibrant culture fostered by highland games and Clan societies in North America. Highland games, clan societies, and other organizations generated much renewed interest in Scottish heritage in the 20th century. The Ailysome were among the earliest of the Scottish settlers as immigration passenger lists have shown: William Allison who settled in Pennsylvania in 1764.
