Where did the Scottish Logue family come from? When did the Logue family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Logue family history?The Strathclyde-Briton people of ancient Scotland were the first to use the name Logue. The Logue family lived in Fife.
Medieval Scottish names are rife with spelling variations. This is due to the fact that scribes in that era spelled according to the sound of words, rather than any set of rules. Logue has been spelled Logie, Loggie, Logy, Logue and others.
First found in Fife, where they held a family seat from early times and their first records appeared on the census rolls taken by the ancient Kings of Britain to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.
