Hi I have also been researching Goudie - I have found that Bruce Goudie (1838-1896) had a brothe Laurence (1840-) They were born Gaudie but he changed it to Goudie when he migrated to New Zealand. Although his mother'd death certificate also had the name Goudie. I think there was also a possibility that the handwriting and/or pronunciation changed. I am also interested in your research Kind regards David Goudie

Although I have no connection with the family I suggest (if you have not already done so) you log onto   http://www.bayanne.info/Shetland
They have a record of 1531 individuals bearing the surname Goudie and 7 with the surname spelled Goudy.

Do you refer to Laurence Goudie b: 12 Feb 1805 in Scousburgh, Dunrossness? See web http://bayanne.info/Shetland/getperson.php?personID=I95977&tree=bayanne_1

Variants of the name could be Goudy, Gowdy, Gowdie, Gauden, Gaudie, Gadie (original spelling dating back to 1545) but most common is Goudie.

Good luck.

I've spent the day updating my tree with the 'bayann' site and now have a Janet Goudie (b.1844 Troswick, Dunrossness. - d. 1917 Watsonville, Ca USA) She married a Laurence Ollason.
