The surname Duthie originated from the Highlands of Scotland in 960AD. The name Duthie was originally called "Duthac" who some connection with the Scottish King at the time. (I am sorry I do not know more in this part). The name was then changed to Duthie around the 11th Century. The body of Duthac was famous as his skeleton was carried along the front of the Scottish warriors prior to the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314 when Scotland fought England and won with only a handful of Scottish soldieurs were lost when many thousand English soldieurs were killed. The English outnumbered the Scots ten to one. The skeleton of Duthac was used as inspiration to the Scots.
