The Ailerdes family name was first used by descendants of the Pictish people of ancient Scotland. It is a name for someone who lived in the old barony of Allardice, in the parish of Arbuthnott in Kincardineshire. This place name is derived from the Gaelic words all, which means "cliff" and deas which means "southern."

The Great Migration



The cruelties suffered under the new government forced many to leave their ancient homeland for the freedom of the North American colonies.

These hardy settlers gave their strength and perseverance to the young nations that would become the United States and Canada. Immigration and passenger lists have shown many early immigrants bearing the name Ailerdes: John Allardice, who landed at Charles Town South Carolina in 1768.
