THIS sirname is derived from Giolla-Easbuig ("giolla:" Irish, the devoted of; "easbog," gen. "easbuig," a bishop; Lat. "episcop-us"), who is No. 102 on the "O'Hagan" (Lords of Tullaghoge) genealogy; as are also the sirnames: McGillanespick, McAnespick, McAnespie, McAnaspie, McAnaspog, Gillaspy, Gillaspie, Gillespy, Gillespie, Gillesbie, etc. We are, however, unable to give the pedigree of the family.
