The west coast of Scotland and the rocky Hebrides islands are the ancient home of the Karrow family. The root of their name is the name Macara, which is the Gaelic word for son of the young, manly one.

Karrow Early Origins



The surname Karrow was first found in Perthshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Pheairt) former county in the present day Council Area of Perth and Kinross, located in central Scotland, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Ancestors of many of the Dalriadan families who crossed the Atlantic still live along the east coast of the United States and Canada.

The descendants of Scottish settlers in both countries began to rediscover their heritage in the 19th and 20th centuries through Clan societies and highland games.
