Reid Genealogy & History

Reid is an English surname with several origins, closely related to Reed. First, it may come from the Old English read, meaning red, and possibly used for Anglo-Saxons, who were often red-haired or had ruddy complexions. It might also come from several places named Read, Rede, or Reed in several counties, or from the Old English ried, for someone living in a clearing. Reid family history enters the New World with Gabriell Reid, who sailed to America in 1635. Famous members of Reid genealogy include Nevada Senator and current Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, actress Tara Reid, and early Australian Prime Minister George Reid.
