Brydie History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



In Scottish history, few names go farther back than Brydie, whose ancestors lived among the clans of the Pictish tribe. They lived in Perth and Arbroath, in Angus where the name can be found since very early times.


Early Origins of the Brydie family


The surname Brydie was first found in Angus (Gaelic: Aonghas), part of the Tayside region of northeastern Scotland, and present day Council Area of Angus, formerly known as Forfar or Forfarshire, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Brydie Spelling Variations


The arts of spelling and translation were yet in their infancies when surnames began, so there are an enormous number of spelling variations of the names in early Scottish records. This is a particular problem with Scottish names because of the numerous times a name might have been loosely translated to English from Gaelic and back. Brydie has been spelled Bryde, Brydie, Bridie, Breeddie, Briddie, Bride and many more.

Migration of the Brydie family to the New World and Oceana


This oppression forced many Scots to leave their homelands. Most of these chose North America as their destination. Although the journey left many sick and poor, these immigrants were welcomed the hardy with great opportunity. Many of these settlers stood up for their newfound freedom in the American War of Independence. More recently, Scots abroad have recovered much of their collective heritage through highland games and other patriotic functions and groups. An examination of passenger and immigration lists has located various settlers bearing the name Brydie:
