Godfrey Genealogy & History

Godfrey is patronymic, derived from the Norman personal name Godefrei, from the Germanic God-fria, meaning God/good-peace. English variations include Godfree, Godfrey, and Godkin, the Irish variations Mac Gothraidh and O'Gothraidh, and the French Godefroi, which was the given name of several of William the Conqueror's leaders. The Godfrey family history includes a feudal manor in Kent, a famous 12th-century crusader Godfrey of Lorraine, and a family motto of deus et libertas, which means God and freedom. One Godfrey coat of arms has three gold pelicans, symbolizing generosity and devotion. In America, Godfrey genealogy begins in the 1630s in both Maine and Virginia.
