First found in the borderlands between Scotland and England; the name was first borne in this region by a Strathclyde-Briton family, as revealed in records dating back to the 13th century.In such difficult times, the difficulties of raising the money to cross the Atlantic to North America did not seem so large compared to the problems of keeping a family together in Scotland. It was a journey well worth the cost, since it was rewarded with land and freedom the Scots could not find at home. The American War of Independence solidified that freedom, and many of those settlers went on to play important parts in the forging of a great nation. Richard Young and his wife, who settled in Virginia in 1623; as did Edward and Jane Young in 1636; Joseph and Margaret Young, who immigrated to New England with their two sons in 1635.

Motto Translated: Prudence excels strength.
