GUTHRIE Family

Contents:
Name forms
Guthrie, Gutry, Guttarage, Gutterege, Guttery, Guttridge
Origin
Irish, Scottish :
Irish: derived from the Gaelic name Flaithimh, meaning "descendant of Flaitheamh", which is a given name meaning prince. The name Guthrie came about when Flaithimh was confused with the Gaelic word laithigh, meaning mud, which was then associated with gutters.
Scottish: 1) derived from the Gaelic word gaothair, meaning windy place, and the regional suffix "ach". The name was given to those who lived near Forfar in County Tayside, SCT. 2) derived from the Gaelic name Mag uchtre, meaning "son of Uctre", which is of uncertain etymology, but may be related to the word "uchtlach", which means child.

chg • GUTHRIE, Alfred [1805-1882] – American engineer GUTH158 5C3
Son of Dr. Samuel Guthrie, the discoverer of chloroform. He studied medicine and chemistry with his father and practised medicine at Sacket Harbor, N.Y., for ten years when he took up the study of mechanical engineering. He removed to Chicago, Ill., in 1846. The hydraulic works of the Illinois and Michigan canal were designed and constructed by him and besides supplying the canal with water from Lake Michigan he utilized the surplus power in conveying the sewage of Chicago to the canal and thence to the Mississippi river. He studied the cause of the frequent steamboat explosions of 1851 and his research resulted in the passage of the U.S. steamboat inspection act, drawn by him and passed by congress through his personal efforts in 1852.

His brother Edwin, also a physician, born Dec. 11, 1806, was a resident of Iowa and gave to Guthrie county its name. He was captain of Iowa volunteers in Mexico, 1846-47, was wounded at Pass la Hoya and died at Castle Perote, Mexico, July 20, 1847, Alfred died at Chicago, Ill., Aug. 17, 1882. BDNA
