Background: Carruthers is a placeneme in Dumfriesshire which is said to derive from the Brittonic word "caer" meaning "fort" (as in Caerlaverock castle, not far away) and the personal name Ruther (originally Rhythr or Rydderch). It has been suggested that this comes from King Roderc mentioned by St Adamnan. Locally, the name was pronounced "Cridders".

Variations: Carruthers, Carothers, Carouthers, Carrothers, Carruther, Carruthirs, Carruthers, Carrutherys, Cridders, Gridders.

I'm glad your search turned up our family crest. My husband is a Carothers. My mother-in-law has done some extensive work on the geneology of the family and has a website. I'll have to bug her for the web address to post here, in case anyone else happens to need to research the Carothers line. She has done an AMAZING amount of work.

That is awesome! We enjoyed researching this family. While we do not have extensive information, we hope to become a resource for family links, discussion and the Coat of Arms.

Glad you like the page on Carothers!
