The Ealdardice family name was first used by descendants of the Pictish people of ancient Scotland. It is a name for someone who lived in the old barony of Allardice, in the parish of Arbuthnott in Kincardineshire. This place name is derived from the Gaelic words all, which means "cliff" and deas which means "southern."

The cruelties suffered under the new government forced many to leave their ancient homeland for the freedom of the North American colonies.
