An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2018


The west coast of Scotland and the rocky Hebrides islands are the ancient home of the MacConnel family. The root of their name is the Gaelic word Mac-Dhomhnaill, which translates to mean the son of the mightiest one in the world.

MacConnel Early Origins



The surname MacConnel was first found in Ayrshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Inbhir ir), formerly a county in the southwestern Strathclyde region of Scotland, that today makes up the Council Areas of South, East, and North Ayrshire, where they held a family seat from early times and their first records appeared on the census rolls taken by the ancient Kings of Britain to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

The Great Migration



Numerous Scottish settlers settled along the east coast of the colonies that would become the United States and Canada. Others traveled to the open country of the west. At the time of the American War of Independence, some remained in the United States, while those who remained loyal to the crown went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. The highland games and Clan societies that sprang up across North America in the 20th century have helped many Scots to recover parts of their lost traditions. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first MacConnels to arrive in North America:
