Late 16C English Given Names: Notes on Ellois

Late Sixteenth Century English Given Names

Notes on the name Ellois

Ellois: Apparently a late survival of Helewis < OFr Heloïs or an early Latinization of the latter; see DES at Elwes, DECN at Helewise. Ely is apparently a pet-form: the name is given as Ely (Ellois) Linton, a widow, of Worth, Sussex.
