Geddes

[ged-eez]
Geddes is a surname and a place name.

People

Nearly all people who share the surname Geddes have ancestry traced to a clan in the Scottish Highlands. Many also have a connection to a Baron born of Clan Geddes whose standard is a red shield with three pikes on its face.There is a small hamlet and a burn called Geddes just North of Cawdor Castle in the County of Nairn. Its a fair bet that the name originated from this spot. The land round about was owned by the Rose clan and it is likely that the Geddes sect would have been under the influence of this clan.

Because the Geddes sect was quite small,it did not have its own tartan. However because the family (at various times in history) owed allegiance to 3 different,and bigger families (clans), it can be said that anyone named Geddes is entitled to wear the tartans of these clans. They are Gordon, Ross and Rose.
