The first family to use the name Appey lived in the area that was once the ancient Scottish kingdom of Dalriada. It is a name for a person who was a lay-abbot of a monastery. In the Middle Ages, this was the title held usually by the leading family of the village.

Appey Early Origins



The surname Appey was first found in the county of Angus, in the parish of Abbey, and Brechin, and the first record was of Donald Abbe of Brechin in 1178, who witnessed a charter with Turpin, Bishop of Brechin, and later he gifted the lands of Balegillegrand to the Abbey of Arbroath, which grant was confirmed by King William the Lion.

Appey Spelling Variations



Translation in medieval times was an undeveloped science and was often carried out without due care. For this reason, many early Scottish names appeared radically altered when written in English. The spelling variations of Appey include Abbey, Aba, Abbe, Abbie, Abey, Abbeys, Aby and others.

The Great Migration



Many settled along the east coast of what would become the United States and Canada. As the American War of Independence broke out, those who remained loyal to the crown went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. The ancestors of all of these hardy Dalriadan-Scottish settlers began to recover their collective history in the 20th century with the advent of the vibrant culture fostered by highland games and Clan societies in North America. Highland games, clan societies, and other organizations generated much renewed interest in Scottish heritage in the 20th century. The Appey were among the earliest of the Scottish settlers as immigration passenger lists have shown: Sarah Abbey who settled in Barbados in 1679; William Abbeys settled in Virginia in 1638; Thomas Abbeys settled in Virginia in 1637; Thomas Abbe settled in Virginia in 1673.
