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


The descendents of Viking settlers in ancient Scotland were the first to use the name Assi. It 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 Assi 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.

Assi Early Origins



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

The Great Migration



In their new home, Scots found land and opportunity, and some even fought for their new freedom in the American War of Independence. Some, who remained loyal to the crown went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. In this century, the ancestors of both of these groups have begun recovering their illustrious national heritage through Clan societies and other Scottish historical organizations. Early immigration and passenger lists indicate many people bearing the Assi name: 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..
