Doig Surname History



The Doig family saga is rooted in the people of the Pictish Clan of ancient Scotland. The Doig family lived in the Kilmadok district of Scotland. The Scottish Doig surname is derived from the Gaelic Mac Gille Doig, which means "son of the servant of St. Cadog." The personal name Cadog was Welsh, and has no connection to the name of the animal.


Early Origins of the Doig family


The surname Doig was first found in Perthshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Pheairt) former county in the present day Council Area of Perth and Kinross, located in central Scotland, where they held a family seat from early times.

Migration of the Doig family to the New World and Oceana


The freedom of the North American colonies was enticing, and many Scots left to make the great crossing. It was a long and hard journey, but its reward was a place where there was more land than people and tolerance was far easier to come by. Many of these people came together to fight for a new nation in the American War of Independence, while others remained loyal to the old order as United Empire Loyalists. The ancestors of Scots in North America have recovered much of this heritage in the 20th century through Clan societies and other such organizations. A search of immigration and passenger lists revealed many important and early immigrants to North America bearing the name of Doig:
