Foody History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Foody family

The surname Foody 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 in their territories. The Pictish influence on Scottish history diminished after Kenneth Macalpine became King of all Scotland. But those east coast families still played an important role in government and were more accessible to Government than their western highland counterparts. The family name became associated as a sept of the Clan Ogilvey. Allegiances were important to Scottish middle age survival. Later they held a family seat at Rhynie.
