Daise History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



In Scottish history, few names go farther back than Daise, whose ancestors lived among the clans of the Pictish tribe. The ancestors of the Daise family lived in Angus (in the modern region of Tayside), and claim descent from Gaelic MacDhai, son of David.

Early Origins of the Daise family


The surname Daise was first found in Angus (Gaelic: Aonghas), part of the Tayside region of northeastern Scotland, and present day Council Area of Angus, formerly known as Forfar or Forfarshire, where they were descended from the Gaelic MacDhai, son of David. From the 13th century onward the name was anglicized MacDavid, Davidson, Deasson and Deas. The branches using Deas and Deasson settled in Angus and in Banffshire at the end of the fifteenth century.

Daise Spelling Variations


Although Medieval Scotland lacked a basic set of spelling rules, which meant that scribes recorded names according to their sounds it was not uncommon for the names of a father and son to be recorded differently. As a result, there are many spelling variations of Scottish single names. Daise has been written Deas, Dease, Deasey, Deasy, Dais, Daes, Deasson, Deason, Dasone and many more.

Migration of the Daise family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of Scots left their home country to travel to Ireland or Australia, or to cross the Atlantic for the North American colonies. The difficult crossing was an enormous hurdle, but those who survived found freedom and opportunity in ample measure. Some Scots even fought for their freedom in the American War of Independence. This century, their ancestors have become aware of the illustrious history of the Scots in North America and at home through Clan societies and other organizations. Passenger and immigration lists show many early and influential immigrants bearing the name Daise: Dennis Dease, who settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1855; another Dennis, who settled there in 1863; Patrick Deasey, who settled in Philadelphia in 1835.
