Candee History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Early Origins of the Candee family


The surname Candee was first found in Suffolk where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The family name was first referenced in the year 1327 when John Gameday held estates in the county. The name was originally Gandow.

Alternatively, the name could have been Norman in origin and in this case, the name was from Candé, near Blois. "Nicholas Candie occurs in Normandy, 1195 (Magni Rotuli Scaccarii Normanniae)" [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Candee Spelling Variations


Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Candee include Gandy, Gandey, Gameday, Candy, Candey, Ganty, Canty and many more.

Migration of the Candee family to the New World and Oceana


Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Candee or a variant listed above:
