An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


Scotland's coastal mountains and Hebrides islands were known in ancient times as the kingdom of Dalriada. The name Hardee evolved there as a nickname for a brave person. This surname is a nickname, which belongs to the category of hereditary surnames. Nicknames form a broad and miscellaneous class of surnames, and can refer directly or indirectly to one's personality, physical attributes, mannerisms, or even their habits of dress. The surname Hardee comes from the Old French and Old English word hardi, which means brave.

Hardee Early Origins



The surname Hardee was first found in Lanarkshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Lannraig) a former county in the central Strathclyde region of Scotland, now divided into the Council Areas of North Lanarkshire, South Lanarkshire, and the City of Glasgow, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Spelling in the medieval era was a highly imprecise process. Translation, particularly from Gaelic to English, was little better. For these reasons, early Scottish names are rife with spelling variations. In various documents Hardee has been spelled Hardy, Hardie, Hardey, MacHardy and others.

The Great Migration



Many settled along the east coast of what would become the United States and Canada. As the American War of Independence broke out, those who remained loyal to the crown went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. The ancestors of all of these hardy Dalriadan-Scottish settlers began to recover their collective history in the 20th century with the advent of the vibrant culture fostered by highland games and Clan societies in North Ameri ca. Highland games, clan societies, and other organizations generated much renewed interest in Scottish heritage in the 20th century. The Hardee were among the earliest of the Scottish settlers as immigration passenger lists have shown:
