Dowd Genealogy & History

Dowd is an Irish patronymic surname, an anglicized version of the Old Gaelic O�Dubhda, meaning son of Dubhda, a personal name meaning black�thus, son of the black one, possibly referring to clothing, since black hair and dark skin are not common in Ireland. Dowd family history begins in 1354, when Ui Fiachrach chief Bhrian O�Dowd was recorded as driving the Anglo-Norman settlers from his land. Dowd genealogy boasts of several notable people, such as Pulitzer-winning conservative columnist Maureen Dowd and railway time zone pioneer Charles Dowd.
