The origins of the Eamilley surname date back to the time of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It comes from an early member of the family who was a leader or ruler. The surname Eamilley originally derived from the Old English word Amalric which referred to someone who held great power. The surname Eamilley was part of a broad and miscellaneous class of surnames. Nickname surnames referred to a characteristic of the first person who used the name. They can describe the bearer's favored style of clothing, appearance, habits, or character.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Eamilleys to arrive in North America: James Emilly who settled in Charleston in 1832; Michael Emberley settled in St. Christopher in 1685.
