Where did the Scottish Gall family come from? What is the Scottish Gall family crest and coat of arms? When did the Gall family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Gall family history?The Dalriadan clans of ancient Scotland spawned the ancestors of the Gall family. Their name comes from the Gaelic surname of Scottish origin, which means son of the battle chief.
The medieval practice of spelling according to sound and repeated translation between Gaelic and English created many spelling variations of the same name. Gall has been recorded as MacAll, MacColl, MacCole, MacCall, MacAul, Mccall and others.
First found in Argyllshire, where they held a family seat from early times and their first records appeared on the census rolls taken by the early Kings of Britain to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

Descendents of Dalriadan-Scottish families still populate many communities across North America. They are particularly common in Canada, since many went north as United Empire Loyalists at the time of the American War of Independence. Much later, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the highland games and Clan societies that now dot North America sprang up, allowing many Scots to recover their lost national heritage. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Gall, or a variant listed above:
