In ancient Scotland, Goudey was a Strathclyde-Briton name for someone who lived in Edinburghshire, where the family was found since the early Middle Ages. Goudey is an ancient Scottish name that evolved from the Goldie, which derives from the Old English personal name Gold.

Goudey Early Origins

The Great Migration



In such difficult times, the difficulties of raising the money to cross the Atlantic to North America did not seem so large compared to the problems of keeping a family together in Scotland. It was a journey well worth the cost, since it was rewarded with land and freedom the Scots could not find at home. The American War of Independence solidified that freedom, and many of those settlers went on to play important parts in the forging of a great nation. Among them:

Goudey Settlers in United States in the 18th Century

  • Alexander Goudey who settled in New England in 1792

Goudey Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • James Goudey, who came to Philadelphia in 1846
  • Charles Goudey, who arrived at Philadelphia in 1865

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Honestas
Motto Translation: Honesty.
