Guidera History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
- Origins Available:
The original Irish roots of the name are unclear; however one suggestion is Mag Fhuadaire, from the Gaelic "fuadaire" meaning "rambler." Another suggestion is Mac Giodaire, a modern Irish form used in Co. Derry, where the name is sometimes found, but this is probably a modern Gaelicization.
Early Origins of the Guidera family
The surname Guidera was first found in north Tipperary (Irish: Thiobraid Árann), established in the 13th century in South-central Ireland, in the province of Munster, where it has been recorded since the middle of the 17th century. The Tipperary Hearth Money Rolls record a Daniel Gidery or Gidary in the parish of Kilmore, and a Donnaigh Gidder in the parish of Aghnmeadle, both in the barony of Upper Ormond. The name appears to have been associated particularly with the north of the county around Roscrea, although it also occurred in the south at Clogheena and Clonmel, where it is present in birth records.
