An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The name Grundey was spawned by the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture that ruled a majority of Britain. It comes from Gundred and variants such as Grundy and Gundreda. The personal name Gundred is an old Germanic name which meant "battle ruler," and became common in England in the centuries following the Norman Conquest as a new wave of immigration from continental Europe swept England. Over time it has dwindled in popularity and today it is almost unheard of.

Grundey Early Origins



The surname Grundey was first found in North England, where the family held a family seat from ancient times. The earliest known bearer of the name was Aicusa filia Grundi, who was recorded in Yorkshire in 1204.

The Great Migration



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Grundeys to arrive on North American shores: John Grundy, who settled in Virginia in 1635; James Grundy, who came to Barbados in 1681; George Grundy, who was naturalized in Norfolk, Virginia in 1793.
