The English surname Ellis, also found in Wales and Ireland, is derived from the medieval personal name Elis, a vernacular form of Elijah. In Wales this surname absorbed forms derived from the Welsh personal name Elisedd, a derivative of elus meaning “kindly, or benevolent.” The first written reference to the name is William Elyas, in the tax returns for the county of Yorkshire, in 1200. One of the first settlers in the New England colonies was Richard Ellis, aged 29 yrs., who left London on the ship "Bonaventure", bound for Virginia in January 1634.
