Josey History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Josey family

The surname Josey was first found in Haddingtonshire, where they held a family seat in their territories. The Pictish influence on Scottish history diminished after Kenneth Macalpine became King of all Scotland. But those east coast families still played an important role in government and were more accessible to Government than their western highland counterparts.
