Origin of last name

CUNDY : English (Cornwall and Devon of Norman origin): habitational name from any of several places in Normandy and Picardy called Condé a French form of the Gaulish condate ‘junction of rivers’. Members of the de Condé family held land in Lincolnshire Kent Leicestershire Cambridgeshire and Yorkshire in the 12th century. The strong presence of the surname in 16th-century Cornwall and Devon is unexpected but is probably the result of migration from counties further east or north. Derivation from the Cornish language is implausible and there is no known place in Cornwall which could have given rise to it as a habitational name.
