Askeby Early Origins



The surname Askeby 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.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. For such families, the shores of Ireland, Australia, and the New World beckoned. They left their homeland at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. Many arrived after the long voyage sick, starving, and without a penny. But even those were greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. Numerous English settlers who arrived in the United States and Canada at this time went on to make important contributions to the developing cultures of those countries. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Askeby were among those contributors: John Aislabee, who settled in Massachusetts in 1692.
