ACE Family HistoryThis is a surname of pre 8th century baptismal origins. Recorded in a wide a variety of surname spellings, all quite rare, and including Ace, Ayce, Acey, Asee, Asey, etc., the derivation is from the Norman-French given name 'Ace', itself a dialectal transposition of the 5th century Frankish 'Adso and Atso'. The original meaning of this word was "noble", and as such in addition to being a given name on its own, it was also used as the prefix to the popular compound given names of the day. Examples of these compounds include Adshelm, "noble protector", and Atsalberht, "noble-bright".
