Aislakbey History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Early Origins of the Aislakbey family


The surname Aislakbey was first found in North Yorkshire at Aislaby, a hamlet and civil parish near the town of Pickering. The place name dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 when it was listed as Asuluesbi. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Williams, Dr Ann. And G.H. Martin, Eds., Domesday Book A Complete Translation. London: Penguin, 1992. Print. (ISBN 0-141-00523-8)
The place name literally means "farmstead or village of a man called Asulfr," from the Old Scandinavian personal name + "by." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Mills, A.D., Dictionary of English Place-Names. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-19-869156-4)
"There was anciently a chapel dedicated to St. Thomas the Martyr, which was founded by William de Aslakby (now Aislaby) and Agnes his wife, in 1313." [3]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
Aislaby is also a village and civil parish in the Scarborough district and finally Aislaby is a small village and civil parish on the north bank of the River Tees within the borough of Stockton-on-Tees in County Durham. Conjecturally, the surname is descended from the tenant of the lands and village of Aislaby, held by Richard Surdeval, a Norman noble, who was recorded in the Domesday Book.

Aislakbey Spelling Variations


Norman surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. The frequent changes in surnames are largely due to the fact that the Old and Middle English languages lacked definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England, as well as the official court languages of Latin and French, also had pronounced influences on the spelling of surnames. Since medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, rather than adhering to any specific spelling rules, it was common to find the same individual referred to with different spellings. The name has been spelled Aislaby, Aislakby, Aislackby, Aslakeby, Aislabie, Aslaby and many more.

Migration of the Aislakbey family to the New World and Oceana


Many English families emigrated to North American colonies in order to escape the political chaos in Britain at this time. Unfortunately, many English families made the trip to the New World under extremely harsh conditions. Overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the stormy Atlantic. Despite these hardships, many of the families prospered and went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the United States and Canada. Early North American immigration records have revealed a number of people bearing the name Aislakbey or a variant listed above: John Aislabee, who settled in Massachusetts in 1692.
