The Gaylorthey family has descended through the lines of the ancient Normans that came to England following their Conquest of England in 1066. The Gaylorthey name reveals that an early member was a happy, joyous, and bold person. The name Gaylorthey derives from the nickname the galliard, which means the bold or the joyous.

Gaylorthey Early Origins



The surname Gaylorthey was first found in county Devon where they held a family seat from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Gaylorthey Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Gaylorthey has been recorded under many different variations, including Gaylord, Gaillard, Galliard, Gaylor, Gayleard and others.

The Great Migration



To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Gaylortheys were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America: John Gaylord who settled in Nantasket in 1630; William Gaylord settled there the same year.
