The MacGregor family

The family MacGregor has been at the height of a lot of contraversy, being exiled etc., upon the exile, we took on a lot of different names and I am wondering which family names were taken

The following URL is a list of the names which are claimed as sept by MacGregor and names which are associated with the Clan.


www.electricscotland.com and www.rampantscotland.com are two websites, based in Scotland which have a lot of information about clans, septs, tartans etc. BUT both sites state that they post information as submitted, they do not verify facts or statements! So ensure that you find at least one or two more corroborative references!

Welcome, by the way.

I know what you mean, Alan. I have a name like that, too... and the earliest on my chart would have been a grandchild of that generation. I have it lucky.... because i have a lead... there are certain names i can look up and see if i have a match. Even still, as Polwarth pointed out, corroboration is the tricky part. Even if i get a match, how will i corroborate both the name change and the move? It seems an impossible task, given the century and the events that took place. I realize with this part of history, we may never know.
