The Bedfordshire parish dates back to 1330 when it was first listed as simply Aspele in 1230 and literally meant "aspen-tree wood," from the Old English "aespe" + "leah." [3]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Apslie or a variant listed above: Abagail Apsley, aged 60, who arrived at Ellis Island from Hudson, Mass., in 1923; Abagail F. Apsley, aged 60, who arrived at Ellis Island from Hudson, Mass., in 1923.
