An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The Anglo-Saxon name Allgoyd comes from the ancient personal name Algod. In Old Danish, the name was Algot, while in Old Swedish, the name was Algut. Although the variant form Allgood appears to be a complimentary nickname, the surname Allgoyd is actually patronymic in origin.

Allgoyd Early Origins



The surname Allgoyd was first found in the counties of Northumberland and Durham, although not of Boernician origin as were most of the families in that area. Originally found in the Domesday Book compiled in 1086 by King William after his conquest of England in 1066, as Algod, the name gradually changed to Allgood.

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Allgoyd family emigrate to North America: John Allgood settled in Barbados in 1674; being one of the first settlers in North America. It is believed he later moved to the mainland.

Motto

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: Age omne bonum
Motto Translation: Do all good.
