Early Origins of the Shandy family
The surname Shandy was first found in Aberdeenshire
(Gaelic: Siorrachd Obar Dheathain), a historic county, and present day Council Area of Aberdeen, located in the Grampian region of northeastern Scotland
, where they held a family seat
from ancient times, some say as early as the 12th century. In this county the name has been found in the parishes of Fyvie, Drumblade, Auchterless, Culsalmond, Forgue, Turriff
, Gamrie and King Edward. The family is said, by C.F. Shand, the family historian, to be descended from Philibert de Shaunde, Earl of Bath in 1485, who in turn, was descended from a noble house in Normandy
. The Earl of Bath, Philibert Shaunde, was created by King Henry II of England
and Normandy. Philibert was styled by the King as "Consanguineus noster.".
