Origin of the Name Guthrie

The Guthrie family history was found in the archives. The name Guthrie is usually of Scottish origin and originated in the Barony of Guthrie in Angus, near Forfar. A very early bearer of the name was Squire Guthrie who was sent to France to aid Sir William Wallace in the year 1299. Sir David Guthrie was the King's Treasurer in the fifteenth century who built Guthrie Castle, near Friockheim, in the year 1468. The existing house was built in the eighteenth century and connected to the Tower in 1848. Although the Guthries of Guthrie were closely connected with the lands belonging to the Abbey of Arbroath, not one of the name is found in the first volume of the register of the Abbey.
In Ireland this name and its variants were introduced into Ulster Province by settlers who arrived from England and Scotland , especially during the seventeenth century. It was the 'Plantations of Ireland ' in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries that marked the end of Gaelic supremacy in Ireland . While the influx of settlers in the wake of the earlier Anglo-Norman invasion of the twelfth century resulted in a full integration into Irish society of the new arrivals, the same never occurred with the Ulster Planters who maintained their own distinct identity.
Guthrie is also used as a variant of the name Lahiff in County Clare.
The Guthrie coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Guthrie descendants.
