Rody History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms




Early Origins of the Rody family


The surname Rody was first found in Kirkcudbright, where they held a family seat. They held a family seat in the barony of Reddick, slurred as in Berwick from Red Wick. The early pronunciation of the name was Rerrick, hence, Archdeacon Gilbert de Rerrick of Glasgow who was elected to Scottish Parliament in 1467. At this time the name took on the more modern spelling of Reddik, and John Reddik was chief of his name in 1599. He held a family seat at Barharrow.

The Rody Motto


The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Tu ne cede malis
Motto Translation: Yield not to misfortunes.
