Multiple Origins for the Surname laidlow


Scottish


laidlow was first used as a surname by the descendents of the Boernician clans of Scotland. The laidlow family lived in Selkirk (now part of the region of Borders). They moved there from Laidlawstiel in Galashiels; however, it seems likely that Laidlawstiel was named after the family, not vice versa. The traditional view of the origin of the name is that it derives from the town of Ludlow, in Shropshire, with the name changing over time as the family migrated north into Scotland.

laidlow Early Origins

The Great Migration



Most of the Boernician-Scottish families who came to North America settled on the eastern seaboard of what would become the United States and Canada. Families who wanted a new order stayed south in the War of Independence, while those who were still loyal to the crown went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. In the 20th century, the ancestors of these families have gone on to rediscover their heritage through Clan societies and other patriotic Scottish organizations. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name laidlow or a variant listed above:
