Eller Family History

Recorded in the spellings of Ellar, Eller and Ellor, and 'related' to the locational surnames Ellerby, Ellerker, Ellershaw, Ellerton, Ellerey, and others, this is both a German and Northern English, and specifically Yorkshire, surname of unusual and uncertain origins. It was probably introduced into England, but as a word only by the Anglo-Saxon settlers after the 5th century a.d., whether it was re-introduced by German engineers responsible for the draining of the Vale of York in the 15th century is open to conjecture.
