Candey History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Early Origins of the Candey family


The surname Candey 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]

Migration of the Candey family to the New World and Oceana


For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Candey or a variant listed above:
