Origin of the Name Ellis

The Ellis family history was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. The name Ellis is derived from the old English first name Ellis or Elias. Variants of the name include Ellison, Elleson and Ellice. This name is of Anglo-Saxon descent spreading to the Celtic countries of Ireland , Scotland and Wales in early times and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts throughout these countries. Examples of such are a Robert Ellison who was recorded in the 'Poll Tax' of the West Riding of Yorkshire, England , in the year 1379 and a Cecilia Elice, County Cambridgeshire, who was recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls', in the year 1273. In Ireland this name and its variants were mostly introduced into Ulster Province by settlers and traders who arrived from England and Scotland , especially during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The name Ellis is on record in County Dublin however, since 1282, when it was recorded as Elys.
The Ellis coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Ellis descendants.
