In Reply to: Origin of name Emslie by Lisa Mullin of 111

it is my undestanding that the name has possibly two origins.The first is from northern England and the original name was "Elmslea" which translated to "dweller of the Elm grove". The second name is "d'emghe" was possibly a soldier of fortune from some unknow country of origin. My source was done by a cousin in Scotland. I have another cousin who has been working on Genealogy and further information may be related.
