The roots of the Assie family name are in ancient Scotland with the Viking settlers. Assie 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 Assie 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.

Assie Early Origins

The American War of Independence provided an opportunity for these settlers to pay back the English monarchy and forge a new nation. Recently, this heritage has survived through North American highland games and Clan societies. Early North American immigration and passenger lists have revealed a number of people bearing the name Assie or a variant listed above: William Hoseason, and family who migrated directly from the Shetlands about 1730 to Jamaica. This family eventually married into the distinguished Bruce family of Jamaica..
