Name variations

Elgey has been spelled many different ways, before English spelling became standardized over the last few hundred years, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. As the English language changed in the Middle Ages, absorbing pieces of Latin and French, as well as other languages, the spelling of people's names also changed considerably, even over a single lifetime. Many variations of the name Elgey have been found, including Elgy, Elgee, the main variation found in my Janet (Langridge) Wild branch of the tree is Elgy
