Today's generation of the Southee family bears a name that was brought to England by the migration wave that was started by the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Southee family lived in Lincolnshire, at Sotebi, from which their name is derived. The surname Southee is thus, a local name, which means it derived from the name of a place where members of the family once owned land or where they may have resided.

Southee Early Origins



The surname Southee was first found in Lincolnshire where Ralph of Sotby held the village and church of Sotebi from the Bishop of Bayeux. This village church is still famous for its Norman chancel arch.
