Gundry History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The history of the name Gundry begins with the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is derived 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.

Early Origins of the Gundry family


The surname Gundry 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.

Migration of the Gundry family to the New World and Oceana


For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Gundry or a variant listed above:
