looking for persons or information on the family name Emberly. I do know it was changed and at one point was spelt Emberley.(pre 1871)First name William is very common. My dad and grandfather both start out William. I know my grandfather hailed out of Newfoundland then Nova Scotia. He married an Macneil, in Nova Scotia. Any info would be appreciated. Known linages are from England, Ireland, France or Norway. I think it is England though. Anyway...email address above. Look forward to hearing from anyone. Thank you for your time.
