Comprising the Surnames of Gade-Gadie-Gaudie-Gawdie-Gawdy-Gowdy-Goudey-Gowdey-Gauden-Gaudern and the Variant Forms
While travelling in Europe several years ago and on an excursion to the Shetland Isles the Editor had learned something Of the family of Goudie so early settled in that Northern Land, and this resulted in forming the acquaint ance Of Gilbert Goudie, Esq., Of Edinburgh, Scotland, a Shetlander by birth and an antiquary and historian of learning and distinction, and immediately communicated with him concerning the prospective publication and asking him, at the same time, what information he could supply relating to the remote ancestry Of the various European branches Of the family. This gentleman instantly manifested a deep interest in the genealogical enterprise and for warded an extensive manuscript comprising the authentic history and many statistics Of the far-away progenitors reaching back to the Scandinavian Viking days. In this treatise he alluded brieﬂy to the English branches of the family and others early settled in Scotland.
