Dowdy Genealogy & History

Dowdy is an Irish patronymic surname from the Irish Gaelic O�Dubhda, meaning son of Dubhda; dubh means black, and da is likely a personal name, given the Irish practice of surnames coming from a description of the patriarch, but the meaning is uncertain. It is also spelled Dowd, O�Dowdy, Duddie, and Doodie. Dowdy family history comes to the New World in 1639, when Henry Dowdy sailed to Connecticut. Dowdy genealogy boasts of several interesting figures, such as actress and singer Helen Dowdy and Mississippi Democratic Chairman Wayne Dowdy.
