Logie Coat of Arms / Logie Family Crest

This surname of LOGIE is a Scottish surname of territorial origin from one or more of the many LOGIE placenames. The name has numerous variant spellings which include LOGINS, LOGIE, LOGGIE, LOGGY and LOGAN. Master John de LOGY, canon of Dunkeld was recorded in 1271 and appears to be the first of the name on record. William de LOGYN was a Scots prisoner of war taken at Dunbar in 1296, and Wauter de LOGY of Fife was documented in 1296. Sir John LOGY is mentioned as one of the conspirators against Robert the Bruce in 1320, and Philipp de LOGY was a charter witness in Dundee in 1321. Duncan LOGY was arrested in Norwich in violation of a truce in 1396. The first people in Scotland to acquire fixed surnames were the nobles and great landowners, who called themselves, or were called by others, after the lands they possessed. Surnames originating in this way are known as territorial. Formerly lords of baronies and regalities and farmers were inclined to magnify their importance and to sign letters and documents with the names of their baronies and farms instead of their Christian names and surnames. The abuse of this style of speech and writing was carried so far that an Act was passed in the Scots parliament in 1672 forbidding the practice and declaring that it was allowed only to noblemen and bishops to subscribe by their titles. Later instances of the name include John LOGEE who complained against being illegally imprisoned in Orkney in 1424, and Alexander LOGY was the burgess of Aberdeen in 1457.Alexander Logy was admitted burgess of Aberdeen, 1457. Robert Loggie, squarewright in Newmiln of Strathisla, 1765. It was not until the 10th century that modern hereditary surnames first developed, and the use of fixed names spread, first to France, and then England, then to Germany and all of Europe. In these parts of Europe, the individual man was becoming more important, commerce was increasing and the exact identification of each man was becoming a necessity. Even today however, the Church does not recognise surnames. Baptisms and marriages are performed through use of the Christian name alone. Thus hereditary names as we know them today developed gradually during the 11th to the 15th century in the various European countries.
