I’m looking for information/connections for my family name. I live in Northern Ireland and believe my name derives from a Hugenot family. My name is David Dowey. The spelling of my surname may be an English spelling of the French name. I know there are people in America and Canada with the same surname but would like to learn more about the background to the name.

Grateful for any help.
