Huey

This very interesting name has a divided history. There are two distinct origins which records show, occassionally overlap. In general the spellings as Huey and Huie, derive from the French - Flemish Huguenot Hue, Huet, and Hughe, names recorded heraldically in Riestaffs Armorial General (circa 1580) for the districts of Normandy, Tournaise and Bruges and all originating from the original personal name 'hugh' meaning 'heart and mind'. The Huguenot form is first recorded in Scotland in 1671 Agnes Hui being christened at Kilmarnoch, Ayr on December 21st 1671, however earlier on February 4th 1657 Margrett Huway (as spelt) married James Gibsch at Derry Cathedral. In this case it is possible that the name has developed from the Gaelic Mac Dhuibh (the son of the black one) but this is not proven. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Thomas Huey, which was dated 1677, married Marion Wilsone at Beith, Aryshire, during the reign of King Charles 11, known as 'The Merry Monarch', 1660 - 1695. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.
