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


The Strathclyde clans of the Scottish/English Borderlands were the first people to use the name Magie. It is derived from the Gaelic name Aodh, meaning Hugh, and the word mac, meaning son of.

Magie Early Origins



The surname Magie was first found in Dumfriesshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Dhn Phris), a Southern area, bordering on England that today forms part of the Dumfries and Galloway Council Area, where they held a family seat from early times. The family name Magie first appeared on the census rolls taken by the ancient Kings of Scotland to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

The Great Migration



Unwelcome in their beloved homeland, many Scots sailed for the colonies of North America. There, they found land and freedom, and even the opportunity to make a new nation in the American War of Independence. These Scottish settlers played essential roles in the founding of the United States, and the shaping of contemporary North America. Among them: Andrew McGee who settled in Baltimore in 1804; Catherine MacGee, who settled in Pennsylvania in 1772; Charles, Daniel, Francis, Henry, James, John, Michael, Patrick, Robert and William, McGee, who all arrived in Pennsylvania between 1840 and 1860.
