Well I have a lot of legal papers on the Gaddie's in Bedford Co., so will have to look through my files again.

Hope some of this helps. Will look into the Bright & Mastin families as well,

I know that it is speculative that William Gaddy arrived in this country sometime in the early 1700's But there are lots of things to tie them together. Somewhere in the Mormon files, and on the web, it is listed that William and his wife Mary had 5 boys and two girls. William born 1721, Mary , Sherwood, George, Thomas, Elizabeth and Joseph. William purchased land in Chesterfield Co, VA and his will left the farm to his wife Mary. George owned the farm ajacent to his fathers. When Mary sold the farm, George sold his and moved to Bedford Co VA. Earlier, Thomas went west and in 1747 purchased land in Brunswick Co. He later was forman for a Mr Arnolds and Tithed for two years. He sold the farm that was now in Bedford moved to Halifax NC. Now to time them a little more together. When Mary sold the farm, a Witness was daughter Elizabeth who was married to a James Black. I am not sure what happened to William, however, I have located a William and Jr in the local area of Virginia, But George and Sherwood both followed Thomas to the Bedford area. I cannot identify Thomas wife except that she was named Lucy. She was not listed when he purchased the land in 1747, but she was a seller when they sold the land in 1760. I have heard that A GADDYn arrived in this country on a ship named the Carolina Galley sometime around the 1715 era. I do have Williams will and Marys indenture and Thomas indenture when he purchased the land in 1747. If I can be of further assistance, please notify. Merry Xmas and a wonderful new year. Bob

R1b; Scottish Mainland - Frankish / French; Scottish surname, a variant of GOLDIE, whose modern variations include GOWDIE. There was a town or village of this name and a 'Little Goudie Chapel' in the vicinity of Dundee. "The surname was early carried to the north, appearing in Shetland first in 1576 in the person of Gawane GADIE of Lougasettar, Dunrossness; There are a very large number of traditions in relation to the ancient origins of the Goudie family including the following: there is a place called Gadie in Aberdeenshire in Scotland; the name is dervied from a Norseman named Gaut; Gaut is an old Gallic name meaning forest; Gautier was often a surname given to lumbermen in Normandy. Research by a Canadian with this surname has located a Sir Breuse GAWDEY, a Scottish knight in 1352. This researcher believes that the evidence indicates that the GOUDIE ancestor came to Scotland with the Bruce family and other Normans after 1066; Gavin GOUDIE, born 1790, Scousburgh, Dunrossness, son of Olla GOUDIE, born about 1760, residing Scousburgh, Dunrossness as an adult and wife Ann WILLIAMSON; YSTR Database: 92 / 20,000 - matches scattered all over Western Europe; Matches 12/12 in the FTDNA haploroup database suggest the possibility of a "Latin link" with unusual matches (for someone of Scottish background) in Italy and Spain (Basques Country); Possible Gallic - Britany origin from whence came many of the Normans in 1066. The surname has not been recorded in Orkney from an early date, leading one to speculate the the Orkney GAUDIEs (sometimes also spelled GOUDIE) were late arrivals from the Mainland or Shetland. Lamb also gives the "Goldie" (i.e., "someone with golden hair") interpretation of the derivation of the name.
John M. Gowdy of Providence, Rhode Island,
compiled a very ambitious work entitled A Family History, Comprising the Names of Gade - Gadie - Gaudie - Gawdie - Gowdy - Goudy - Gowdey - Gauden - Gaudern -- and the Variant Forms from A. D. 800 to A. D. 1919 (Lewiston, Maine: Journal Press, 1919). In it he attempted to trace to the beginning the family lineage of all the Goudy clan. He concluded that the first identifiable members of the family were Norsemen named "Gade" and "Gaut." He referred to a runestone on the Isle of Man known as the Gaut
Monument, perhaps from the early ninth century.
