"AINSLIE, ATNSLEE. Most probably from
Annesley in Nottinghamshire, England. William
de Haneslej who witnessed a charter by
Walter, bishop of Glasgow, between 1208-18
(LCD., p. 236) is probably William de Anslee,
canon of Glasgow c. 1220 (RMP., p. 1). In
1221 Magister Thomas de Aneslei was one of
a number appointed to settle a dispute between
the monks of Kelso and the bishop of
Glasgow (REG., p. 101; Kelso, 230), and Sir
Aymer de Aynesley was one of the knights
appointed to settle the law of the marches in
1249 (APS., i, p. 413). Two individuals of
this name rendered homage in 1296: ( 1 ) John
le fiz Johan de Anesleye of Roxburghshire,
and Johan de Anesleye of Crucfut [?
Crawford] of Lanarkshire (Bain, n, p. 199, 212).
The seal of the former appended to his homage
is broken but shows two geese (?) drinking
at a fountain and S' loh'is. se. . . Ant (?).
Adam de Aynesleye was juror on an inquisition
held at Roxburgh in 1357 (ibid., , 1641),
and John of Aynesley witnessed a grant of the
forest of Eteryk to John Kerre in 1358 (
Roxburehe, p. 8). In 1377 Robert n granted to
William de Aynysley a charter of the lands
of Dolfynston in the sheriffdom of Roxburgh
forfeited by John de Aynysley his father
(RMS., i, 592). The lands of Dolphingstoun
passed, c. 1500, to the Kers of Cessfurd through
marriage of Mark Ker with Marjorie Ainslie,
daughter and heiress of John Ainslie. Ralph
Aynsle produced a remission for being
treasonably associated with Alexander, formerly duke
of Rothesay, in 1493 (Trials, i, p. 17). John
Ainslie, the eminent geographer and land
surveyor, was a descendant of the old family,
and Robert Ainslie ( 1766-1838 ) was a friend
and correspondent of Robert Burns. The
surname was at one time common in and about
Jedburgh, but has now disappeared from there.
