High Genealogy & History

High is an English name. It was originally derived from the Middle English words hie or hegh, themselves derived from the Old English heah, meaning tall. Thus, it likely originated as a nickname given to a tall person. Another possibility is that it was a topographical name given to someone who lived on a hill or another high place. High family history begins in Buckinghamshire, a county in south-central England. High genealogy in America began with Thomas High, who came to Virginia in 1663; another early American High was Archibald High, who landed at Maryland in 1670.
