Boyd Genealogy & History

Boyd is a locational English/Irish/Scottish name; places named Boyd existed since early times, including Bute in the Firth of Clyde. Variations include Boid, Boyda, Boyt, MacElwee in Manx, and O'Boyd in Ulster. Boyd family history traces back to Robert Stewart, one of two Norman brothers who founded the Royal Stuart dynasty in Scotland; Robert was known as Robert Buidhe ("fair-haired" Robert), which became Robert Boyd. Related to the Montgomerys, the Boyds arrived in Ulster from Kilmarnock when Sir Thomas Boyd of Bedlay was granted 1500 acres in Strabane. American Boyd genealogy starts in Maryland in 1674. The Boyd motto, "confido", means I confide.
