Emsall Spelling Variations



Anglo-Norman names are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. When the Normans became the ruling people of England in the 11th century, they introduced a new language into a society where the main languages of Old and later Middle English had no definite spelling rules. These languages were more often spoken than written, so they blended freely with one another. Contributing to this mixing of tongues was the fact that medieval scribes spelled words according to sound, ensuring that a person's name would appear differently in nearly every document in which it was recorded. The name has been spelled Embsay, Empsall, Empsay, Empshall, Emsall, Empsall, Emsay, Empsale, Embsale, Emsale, Elmsall, Elmsay, Hemshall, Hempshall, Hempsale, Hempsall and many more.
