I just saw your posting as I am new to the board. Please do a search under Jews in Turkey as I've seen the name there (left Spain for protection in Turkey...) . Sorry I don't have that url right on board but I do have this following one. The name is Sephardic and means "trouble-maker."

In sephardim.com, ASEO from Arabic means "troublemaker," and ASSA is from Hebrew and Berber, and does not mean troublemaker, it means "REMEDY AND THE NAME OF A JUDEAN KING"

Surnames: Asay, Asaya
Hello, my name is Veronica Asay and we have always believed that the Asays originated in Scotland or France. Recently I went on the website www.sephardim.com and saw a variation of my name on there: Asaya. Any idea if this is a coincedence or maybe I'm on to something, I don't know. If anyone can shed some light on this I'd be appreciative. Thanks and God bless.

I knew in Tangier (Morocco) a man named Leon Assa, who was teacher a the Alliance Israelite Universelle, he later moved to Madrid Spain. I think he must be deceded now, but I think he still has family there.

H Veronica -- I have copies of tin-types with a note to my father that these were his ASAY great-grandparents from Scotland. It would be another tiny bit of evidence pointing toward a Scottish origin for at least some Asay families.

These would have been the parents of Ellen ASAY b. 31 Mar 1850 in Cherokee, IA. I have no other information about that line of my family. If anyone reading this knows of an Asay family in Iowa during the mid-1800s, I would love to hear from you. Penny

Hi, Penny,

Ellen Asay was my second great-grandmother. I have her date of birth as March 23, 1853. She was born in Illinois. She married Aaron Winfield Leeds in Rock Island County, Illinois on August 27, 1871. They are found in Cherokee County, Iowa in the 1900 census. She died September 26, 1927 in Cherokee and is buried there in Oak Hill Cemetery.

I would be thrilled to obtain copies of the tin types you mentioned in your post and share additional information.
