This most interesting and unusual surname is of Old Scots-Gaelic origin, and is a locational name from one or more of the many places so called in Scotland, for example, Logie, near Leuchars in Fife, and Loggie, on the western shoreof Loch Broom in Ross and Cromarty. The derivation is from the Gaelic "log", hollow and the local suffix "-ach", which when found in placenames denotes "full of" or "abounding in". During the Middle Ages when migration for the purpose of job-seeking was becoming more common, people often took their former village name as a means of identification, thus resulting in a wide dispersal of the name. William de Logyn and Malise de Loghis were Scots prisoners of war taken at Dunbar in 1296, according to the "Calendar of Documents relating to Scotland". Sir John of Logy was one of the conspirators against Robert the Bruce in 1320. Alexander Logy was admitted burgess of Aberdeen in 1457, and William Logie married Elspeth Hew on April 24th 1674, at Wemyss, in Fife, Scotland. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of John de Logy, Canon of Dunkeld, which was dated 1272, in the "Register of Inchaffery", during the reign of King Alexander 111 of Scotland, 1249 - 1286. 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.
