Dunwoody Family History

Recorded in a wide range of spellings including Dinwoodie, Dinwidie, Dinwiddie, Dunwoodie, Dunwoody, Dunworthy and others, this is a famous Scottish surname. It is territorial from the barony of Dinwoodie in the parish of Applegarth, Dunmfriesshire, on the Scottish borders with England. It is said that the origin is pre 7th century Gaelic from ''dun'' or ''din'' meaning a wood or forest and ''gwydd'' which means much the same! Arguably the name means wood - wood, a result of language and dialect changing several times in the past 1500 years.
