"ALGEO. "There are several respectable farmers in this parish [Inchinnan] of the name of Algie or Algoe, a name peculiar, it is believed, to this part of the country. In former times a family of this name had considerable estates in Renfrewshire, and were of Italian origin, the first of them having come from Rome, in the suite of one of the Abbots of Paisley. The Algies of Inchinnan are spirited fanners, and the name, along with others in this place frequently flourishes among the prize takers at ploughing matches" (New statistical account, Renfrew, p. 120). Nisbet says the grandson of the Italian immigrant, Peter Algoe, got the lands of Easter Walkinshaw by marrying Marion Morton, heiress thereof, in 1547 (Heraldry, l, p. 266). He was probably the Peter Algeo who was burgess of Paisley in 1550 (Protocols, i.). Robert Algeo, who rendered to Exchequer the account of the bailies of Renfrew in 1585 (ER., xxi, p. 250) is probably Robert Algeo, bailie of the same burgh in 1603 (Laing). John Algeo, tenant of Wattishill in 1591 (RPC., rv, p. 650) may be the John Algeo who was burgess of Paisley in 1603 (Laing). Thomas Algeo was servitor to the countess of Abercorn in 1626 (Lees, Paisley, p. 268), John Algo was heir of William Algeo, portioner of Eister Walkinschawe in 1632 (Inquis., 1903), and Crawfurd says the family failed in the person of John Algoe of Easter-Walkinshaw in the reign of Charles i. John Algeo was a merchant in Aberdeen in 1681 (ROA., I, p. 239), Mr. James Aljo was a writer in Minnigaff in 1684 (RPC., 3. ser. x, p. 242), and William Algeo was town clerk of Queensferry in 1686 (RPC., 3. ser. xii, p. 495-496). The name appears several times in the Campsie Commissariot Record in the seventeenth century. Allgeo 1556, Algow 1768. Cf. AULDJO. "(The surnames of Scotland. George Fraser Black, 1866-1948)
