An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2018


Olterdyce was first used as a surname by descendants of the Pictish people of ancient Scotland. The ancestors of the Olterdyce family lived in the old barony of Allardice, in the parish of Arbuthnott in Kincardineshire. This place name is derived from the Gaelic words all, which means "cliff" and deas which means "southern."

Olterdyce Early Origins



The surname Olterdyce was first found in Kincardineshire (Gaelic: A' Mhaoirne), a former county on the northeast coast of the Grampian region of Scotland, and part of the Aberdeenshire Council Area since 1996, in a barony of the name Allardice, in the parish of Arbuthnot, about 1 mile north west of Inverbervie, where the Allardice Castle (also spelled Allardyce), the sixteenth-century manor house still stands today.

The Great Migration



Many Scottish families suffered enormous hardships and were compelled to leave their country of birth. They traveled to Ireland and Australia, but mostly to the colonies of North America, where many found the freedom and opportunity they sought. It was not without a fight, though, as many were forced to stand up and defend their freedom in the American War of Independence. The ancestors of these Scots abroad have rediscovered their heritage in the last century through the Clan societies and other organizations that have sprung up across North America. Immigration and passenger ship lists show some important early immigrants bearing the name Olterdyce: John Allardice, who landed at Charles Town South Carolina in 1768.
