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

Origins Available: Irish, Scottish


The Pictish clans of ancient Scotland were the first people to use the name Ellgate. It comes from living in Liddesdale and Teviotdale where the family has a long and distinguished history dating back to the early Middle Ages. The name is actually derived from the Old English personal name Elwald or Aelfwald, but this name is now all but extinct as a personal name.

Ellgate Early Origins



The surname Ellgate was first found in Liddesdale, and Teviotdale where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
