GLASBY Family History

This unusual name is one of the many variant Anglicized forms of the Scottish and Irish name more familiar as Gillespie. This itself is the most frequently found Anglicization of the Scottish Gaelic name "Mac Gille Easbuig", and of the Irish Gaelic "Mac Giolla Epscoip" or "Easpuig". Both of these names are patronymic forms ("mac" son of) of a byname meaning "servant of the bishop". The Gaelic "easbuig" or "epscoip, easping", is ultimately derived from the Latin "eposcop-us", bishop. The modern Anglicized forms of the name include M(a)c Gillaspick, Gillesp(e)y, Gillaspy, Gilhespy, Glasb(e)y, Galasby, Aspig and Aspol.
