Where did the Irish Guidera family come from? What is the Irish Guidera family crest and coat of arms? When did the Guidera family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Guidera family history?

The original Irish roots of the name are unclear; however one suggestion is Mag Fhuadaire, from the Gaelic "fuadaire" meaning "rambler." Another suggestion is Mac Giodaire, a modern Irish form used in Co. Derry, where the name is sometimes found, but this is probably a modern Gaelicization.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Guidera, Guidery, Guider, Guidra, Guidry, Gidery and others.

First found in north Tipperary (Irish: Thiobraid Árann), established in the 13th century in South-central Ireland, in the province of Munster, where it has been recorded since the middle of the 17th century. The Tipperary Hearth Money Rolls record a Daniel Gidery or Gidary in the parish of Kilmore, and a Donnaigh Gidder in the parish of Aghnmeadle, both in the barony of Upper Ormond. The name appears to have been associated particularly with the north of the county around Roscrea, although it also occurred in the south at Clogheena and Clonmel, where it is present in birth records.
