There are a few country residential homes, on lots approximately one hectare in size, hidden in the eastern portion of Ellerslie.

The name Ellerslie has been used to designate this area since the turn of the 20th century. Some sources indicate that the name was likely derived from the Ellerslie House, believed to be the birthplace of William Wallace, a Scottish insurgent against Edward I of England. Other sources believe this area was named by the brothers John and James McLaggan, owners of the first store and post office in the area, after a character in a novel by Sir William Scott. The Ellerslie School District was established in 1895, and the post office began operating in 1896.
