COUTTS Family HistoryThis long-established surname is of early medieval Scottish origin, and is a territorial name either from the lands of Cults in Aberdeenshire (now part of the Grampian region), so called from the Gaelic "coillte", woods, with the latter addition of the English plural "-s"; from Cults, a parish South West of Cupar in mid Fifeshire; or from the lands of Couttie, which formerly belonged to the Abbey of Coupar-Angus, old spellings of which were Cowte and Cultby. Locational surnames, such as this, were originally given to local landowners, and the lord of the manor, and especially as a means of identification to those who left their birthplace to settle elsewhere.
